on the street today

I was crossing South Edmunds Street, with the light, and this man was crossing toward me. As he approached he asked "Sir, can I ask you a question?" I say, "Yes," but I keep walking as i do not have conversations in crosswalks.

He says, "Well, I'm trying to get to Skagit County." I ask, "Why?" but I didn't get an answer.

You may admire my restraint in that I didn't say, "You just did," in response to his first question, nor did I call him on the fact that he never asked me the question he wanted to ask.

He continued the way he was going, asking other people if he could ask them a question.
