This morning, while strolling down Main Street on my way to the studio, I was accosted by a young man who kept calling me "wifey" and wanted me to hang out with him on the street corner all afternoon. Normally I would jump at the offer to make a new friend, but I had things to do this morning, so I regretfully declined.
Two thoughts ran through my head as I walked away from my new BFF: What a nice guy; it's really nice of him to follow me to my building to make sure I got there safe and Were men half as polite on Main Street in 1911?
I don't know the answer to the latter thought, but I do know that the women back then were not lucky enough to be called "wifey" by a total stranger. What I can tell you, though, are five super-cool places on Main Street that you should visit at least once.
