Yikes.

What was potentially a very bad situation was quickly diffused.

I was walking home along 1st Ave though Belltown as usual, maybe 3 or 4 blocks from home, when this hispanic guy intercepts my path. He walks backwards in front of me a few steps and starts going on like "hey mama, you have a real nice body" etc. I change my path to go around him, and he changes his too to stay in front of me. Just as I'm starting to freak and thinking fight/flight this other guy who was walking about 10 paces ahead of me turns around and comes back. He says to me, "Hey, how's it going?" and the hispanic guy bolts. This guy keeps walking next to me, asks if I'm ok, and I thank him bunches. He walks with me maybe a block, and then turns and goes his way and says good night and I thank him again.

To whoever that was: Thank you a thousand times. I'll either be walking a different way or taking the bus for a while.
