Overheard/seen in Portland

A man and a woman are walking down the street, arguing. The man steps off the sidewalk into an alcove doorway and stands facing the door while the woman walks on. After continuing to walk and rant for a few steps, the woman notices that she has lost her companion. She stops, turns around to look for him, and, when she sees him, asks, "What are you doing there?"

His response (still facing the door): "I'm hiding."

I walked past them at this point and did not catch any more, but somehow I don't think it worked. :}

Sounds like he underestimated the woman's intelligence, thinking that hiding his face would make him disappear just as the peek-a-boo effect works with babies. I haven't made that mistake in a while. ;)
