I was using a level to draw line work on the Brooklyn Bridge and listening to music on headphones when a lady named Roma tapped me on the shoulder. I took off my headphones and she said, “You’re not an artist right?” I said back, “Why do you say that?”

Roma – “Because you’re using one of those things. Artists’ don’t use those things.”
John – “Well then, I must not be an artist.”
Roma – “So what are you?”
John – “You have to guess.”
Roma – “Are you a craftsman?”
John – “Yes! That’s right. You got it right on the first guess.”
Roma – “Wow! You’re a really great craftsman!”
