A series of gifs excerpted from Comparative Tests On A Human And A Chimpanzee Infant Of Approximately The Same Age (1932): a film from the Psychological Cinema Register of The Pennsylvania State College that compares the reactions of a normal human infant between the ages of 10 and 14.5 months to psychological tests, and the responses of a chimpanzee companion, age 7.5 to 12 months, to the same tests.

This is the story of the day Chicago won the battle against Alyssa.

It all began on a bike. I had decided to bike share for the day. I had a primo parking space and was not planning on losing it. For those who aren’t graced with the privilege of living in Chicago, its streets are riddled with potholes. Potholes capable of holding a small pug comfortable. No driver or biker wants to come in contact with these beasts in fear of creating a massive flat tire. I assume this was the thought of the cabbie that hit me while I was biking in the bike lane.

After I was knocked to the ground, the cabbie decided to exit his yellow vehicle to say this:

“You must be in the line!”
“No worries, I’m totally fine. Also, I was in the bike lane. You know, the lane designated specifically for bikes. Not bikes and cabs.”

He looked at me confused, asked if I was alright, left before I could answer really and drove away. Kindness is truly alive and well.

Then a woman who watched all the transpired also watched me get back on my back and then decided to ask:

“Are you mobile?”
“Um…yeah.”
“Please move your arms around.”
“I mean, I had to move my arms to pick up my bike and then get back on it…so yeah. I’m mobile.”
“Are you shook up?”
“I got hit by a car so yes but I also need to go so like I’m good really.”

And then I biked back to my apartment.

Chicago: 1 Alyssa: 0

I arrived home, gathered my boyfriend and we got on a bus to pick up our new bikes. The air was thick with irony and also the smell of urine. Why? Because a homeless man was on the bus in his jorts pacing up and down the aisle. I noticed his fly was open. As he was homeless and mumbling to himself, I figured he probably wouldn’t be super concerned about a zipper on his pants. Then he turned. And there, through the open fly, was his penis. I watched until my stop as each person looked at him and then really looked at him. Their faces almost made me forget the large welt accumulating on my arm. Then he headed in my direction. Avoiding something that rhymes with “direction,” I got off a stop early.

Chicago: 2 Alyssa: 0

Riding my new, beautiful bike home, I looked down at my arms which were now beet red. The first sunny day in Chicago decided to seek revenge on winter starting with my forearms.

Chicago: 3 Alyssa: 0

So Chicago may have won the battle, but I will win the war. Because I love Chicago and I may be hard to like at first, but once people get to know me I really am not that bad. I will win it with kindness and shear force of pizza eating.

Meeting new people can be really tough. Small talk is basically searching for common ground. You talk about weather and where you grew up in hopes this will lead to a prolonged human connection. Wouldn’t it just be easier if we came out and said what we like and don’t like about people? Immediately, you would know if you share any kind of common ground. Then you can talk shit about other people that do the things you both dislike.

Or you can do what I do and stand awkwardly by the side of two people who are small talking and hope they acknowledge you eventually.
