"You never get a second chance to make a first impression."
That's like the quote attributed to the late Philadelphia Mayor, Frank Rizzo: "The streets are safe in Philadelphia. It's only the people who make them unsafe."
I was reminded of this (first impressions, not Philadelphia) outside a Quik-Trip here in Liberty.
I had paid for gas (filling my gas tank costs me more than rent in my first apartment!) and was waiting for my daughter to come back with drinks when a big burly guy exited the convenience store.
I mean *big* -- I'm about 5-11 and top the scales at 255 -- and this guy was a good four or five inches taller and 30 pounds heavier.
He was bald -- nothing wrong with that, see my pic -- but shaved bald. He wore a sleeveless denim jacket, sported tats (I mean, body art), and everything about his rolling, slightly bow-legged gait said *biker dude*!
Until he got on his VESPA.
