Heard in DC

(Columbia Heights. A woman walks up to a few of us waiting for the bus. She speaks to a gal with a laundry basket to her left.)

WOMAN: Excuse me, you gotta lighter?

(She doesn't have a lighter. She turns to a guy on her right.

WOMAN: You got a light?

(He doesn't have a light. She looks to a couple Hispanic guys in front of her, sitting next to me.)

WOMAN: Fuego? Fire?

HISPANIC: We don't have a light.

(She leaves, and laughter ensues.)
