That woman dancing in the street dances all over the place. The other morning when it was very cold (not as cold as today) she was dancing on the sidewalk going from the freeway to the Bulb on Buchanan, just a spaghetti-strap shirt on, no sweatshirt or jacket. I see her often. She's very joyful, but I assume she's on something. Meth, anyone?

Assume? Without any real contact ie: conversation or coiborating evidence? I can only assume that only drugs would make you joyful and a gun to your head make you dance. Prozac anyone?
