When I was running on the Grand Central service road near Jamaica High School, a taxi driver very pathetically asked me how to find Atlantic Avenue.
I am the one who never knows anything about giving directions. I said to myself, “O God, save me, save me!” Then I said to the taxi driver, “Make a right turn and go to Jamaica Avenue, and then ask people there how to go to Atlantic Avenue.”
The driver said, “I see the Van Wyck Expressway and Atlantic Avenue when I come from Kennedy Airport.”
I said, “Yes, you have to make a right turn.”
I was so proud of myself that I was able to give him the correct information.
