Strange and Stranger

(Originally posted on Blogger site.)

I started watching a film yesterday — Stranger on the Third Floor.

I viewed one scene, somewhere near the middle of the movie, and a thought occurred to me.

To some of the tenants with whom I’ve shared apartment buildings in more recent years of my life, I probably seemed a lot like Peter Lorre’s character. It’s fair to say: that scene could be a loose depiction of me leaving my old apartments on any given day. Right down to the scarf-flipping.

[Note to self: when someone is exiting building behind you, hide in submerged basement stairwell so you seem to suddenly disappear.]
