Steven, I had half of a piece of cake left in my bag. That would have lasted me for a few hours... till you came to bail me out.... Glad to have your phone number!
I'am doing "the touching" in museums quite often. Security doesn't like me around the world. You know, not for a second did I think that I shouldn't touch anything. It was, and always is, an impuls, a reflex.
Double violator . . . touching the exhibits and carrying food into the museum! Soon your mug shot will be sent to museum guards around the world with the admonition to "Watch for the serial toucher." Hope they don't put you on the Don't Fly List . . . you'll be stuck in Boston forever (like the guy in the song on the subway).
