Is it too soon for another one of these? I went hiking this past weekend and literally got almost all of my material just from eavesdropping on conversations on the way up and down. Runyon Canyon has turned into one of my favorite spots to hike. For one, its not ridiculously far from us, there is always great people watching and the view at the top is one of the prettiest 360° view of LA, the valley and the Pacific. Anyways, this time, I left some of my own comments in pink after the conversations. I hope you enjoy them as much as I always do!
Hipster guy (dressed in skinny jeans, alligator skin shoes, a v-neck and shades...on a HIKE.)
Hipster Guy: So, I guess he has been more successful in the "traditional" sense than me.
Girl: Like, he is making a lot of money?
Hipster: Riiiiight. Which is so overrated if you are compromising your craft.
*rolls eyes, trips on a log*
you're right hipster kid, getting paid for a living is so overrated.
Fit, Tan, Australian Man: You've gawt to reeeally lewk inside your haert and pool from witheen.
(translation: you've really got to look inside your heart and pull from within).
Pudgy,White Kid With Lisp: yeah I really think thasa good idea, and I should jus get out here and walk!
Fit, Tan, Australian Man: Pri-Sci-Slee! (Precisely)
Pudgy, White Kid With Lisp: Then I can set a goal to be like you.
Fit, Tan, Australian: Well... everyone is different.
You mean not everyone can be as pretentious as you?
::Runyon Canyon, at the very top::
Girl #1: Look at all that fog!
Girl #2: That's like smog. Like dirt or something.
Girl #1: Do you think if everyone turned on their blow dryers and pointed up that it would push it all
higher in the air and then it would be clear?
Girl #2: That would be sweet!
Go for it girls, that would be a nice way to spend a Saturday.
::Chipotle, Newport Beach::
Girl #1: How many calories does cheese got?
Guy #2: It depends I think.
Girl #1: But vegetables don't have any calories, right?
Girl #2: Um, not like of fat.
Girl #1: I bet ice has like zero calories. And then you burn like 100 when you chew it.
I don't think it works that way.
Tourist woman: You know I heard that Balboa Island is surrounded by water..all the way around!
hence the world ISLAND?
::Runyon Canyon, two film students, I assume::
Film Student #1: So what is your film about?
Film Student #2: I don't know what is about, but I can tell you what happens.
It's like in a classroom, but....its really just a room. And when Mallory
pukes in the corner its like, exquisite.
I have no words for this one...
