I want to see a man walking down (not up - I'm picky that way) Broadway (somewhere in the low 90s) on really tall wooden stilts. He should be dressed in an old-fashioned grey flannel suit with chalk pinstripes -- the pants extra-extra-long, so no part of the stilts shows. Tophat. Spats. He should sport a monocle and pocket-watch with fob, and peer at the watch with a purposeful expression as he hurries through the crowd, en route to a horse and carriage waiting beneath a gas-lit streetlight to take him somewhere to sign a historical document with a quill.
