smiling to myself

When the weather is finally warm enough for Jose, the building manager, to start hosing off the sidewalk in front of the office, but the winter has been so long that the West Side morning bike messenger forgets to look out for the hose as he crosses 4th West; so he lays some rubber on the rubber, causing Jose to jerk around and dowse both Ronnie, the Jade market clerk's, perfectly coiffed Mohawk AND his sketchy cigarette in frigid water.

And it's like I'm on the 8th row of the Shamu show at Sea World--close enough to enjoy the spectacle without getting wet...

Yeah but there's something so intriguing about the "Splash Zone". It's just so cool!
