The man semi-thanked us and seemed about to go on his way. Then he paused. "Are you for the redistribution of wealth?" he broached, off-handedly, as if he were commenting on the weather.
I was a bit taken aback. "That's a pretty general question, isn't it?" I asked.
He seemed confused that I might think so. "No . . . " he hedged.
I continued, "I mean, what wealth, and to who?"
"Oh, all of it."
"Like Robin Hood?" I queried. He looked blank. "Robin Hood?" I repeated.
"Oh, yeah! Exactly." And then he handed us each a flyer, and said, "It's going to happen soon. You're the 59th person I've given this flyer to. Everyone's excited about it."
I wasn't sure what to say, so I paused a moment. He added, "Anyway, I'm on my way to the Apple store. You said turn right on Market, right?"
He walked away.
I shouted after him, "Enjoy the Apple Store!"
