This post doesn't have much to do with anything. Just some weirdness that happened to me a few hours ago.
Today was such a gorgeous day that I went to Cafe Pick Me Up
to do some design. I grabbed an outside table and an iced coffee and
began scribbling away in a notebook. It's been awhile since I've been
able to do the cafe thing, so it was nice to get back into it.
was sitting there for maybe a half hour when one of the baristas came up
to me and asked if I could move. "Some guys want to film here. Is that
okay?" Eh, sure. This is New York, after all. There was another table
nearby, so I moved my stuff over. He even gave me a free drink to
apologize. Yes, I have mentioned that I love this place.
the film looked to be some kind of interview segment. Three ladies sat at
the table and began chatting with each other. The man with the camera told
them to "just talk and pretend I'm not here." Pretty common enough, but
then I noticed that one of the ladies was wearing a hot pink pants suit
with matching blazer and - I kid you not - pointy elf ears.
long after, a middle-aged woman came up to me and asked if I could hold
her dog's leash while she ran in to grab a coffee. She was wearing a
multi-colored tie-dyed shirt with hair to match. I took the dog's leash
and she came back within minutes. She instantly asked me, "Dude! Did you
see the naked guy?" Naked guy? "Yeah! Yesterday, there was a naked guy
hanging around here. Everyone was talking about it!"
"I haven't seen any naked guys." I told her, "but there's an elf girl being interviewed over at that table."
"Pff," she scoffed. "I get interviewed all the time."
And with that, she took her dog and left.
