Woman Walking Down Hilliard Street. She said, "Don't try to sell me anything." She took the flower and said, "Give me a cigarette honey." She read the date and thanked me. I rode away and a man a few yards down asked if I was giving away five dollars a day. I said, "No, a flower a day." He thought $5 would be pretty nice. His friend said, "Look what I have!" and pulled a small bottle of Seagram's Gin out of a bag. I was confused and I said, "What's that?" He said, "Liquor! I have twelve of them! Three dollars each." I told him I did not have any money. He said, "Well, go to the tilly and get some money and come back. I'll be here." I was tempted, but I didn't.
I thought it was interesting that he told me to go to the "tilly". When I was a kid, one of the first ATM's was called Tilly. My mother used to say, "I need to bang Tilly" when she needed some money. I wonder if he was calling the ATM "Tilly", if he was referring to the bank in general or to something else.
