Philip Roth

I am 37.  It was around 10 years ago.

I was on the Upper West Side.  I believe I was in the 90s, and I think it was around Columbus Avenue. Was I really on the Upper West Side?

I was walking and I saw Philip Roth.  He was walking in my direction.  I'm almost sure it was Philip Roth.  It would make sense -- he had an apartment somewhere on the Upper West Side.  I'm fairly certain it was him.

We made eye contact.  I'm pretty sure we made eye contact.  I definitely saw him, and I definitely looked at his face and saw his eyes, and I'm pretty sure he also looked at my face and saw my eyes, at the same moment.  I'm not completely sure we made eye contact but I think we did.

I think it was Philip Roth and I think we looked at each other but I'll never be 100% sure.

OR

Ten years ago, on the Upper West Side, did I really cross paths with Philip Roth and make eye contact with him?
