My Bob Dylan Experience #TBT

In 2005, I was working at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. As I was walking down the hall, late for work, this man was walking towards me. He was about 20 feet away. He was scruffy, wearing an oversized coat and a dingy wool cap pulled down over his face. He looked destitute has he shuffled along down the hallway. I was convinced he was homeless.

He leered at me as we walked towards each other. I became increasingly uncomfortable. He looked me up and down and I just tried to maintain my composure. I decided to call security as soon as I got to the office. When we were about arms length apart, I realized…

“Oh my god. That’s Bob Dylan.”

I froze as we passed each other. I spun around and stared at him as he walked away. He never looked back. He was done looking at me.

I got to work and told the other people in the office, “I just saw Bob Dylan!” Turns out that his 2YO and 4YO were having a check up. Had I been on time, I could have met him. But then I probably wouldn’t have been blatantly objectified by Bob Dylan.

tl;dr: I got the up-down from a Nobel Prize winner.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover a person that actually knows what they are discussing over the
    internet. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you certainly have
    the gift.
