Young (millenial) at The Getty looking at Minor White's photographs

"I mean, they're cool.  I guess back in his day it was good but I mean, he was basically just like photoshopping with his environment."

Dirty fingernails/dirty clothed man sitting outside Italian restaurant on an extremely hot day

Him: "Buy me some food and I will eat it. God will bless you."

MePointing to cafe next to Italian restaurant.  "The owner there is very nice and they have day old bagels.  Let me go ask her if she has any food to give.  I know her."

Him: "I don't eat bagels."

Me: "They are gluten free."

Him: "No I don't want any food from that place."

Me: "Well, what do you want to eat?"

Him: "Buy me Fettuccine Alfredo.  I will eat it. God will bless you."

Me: "Well, I feel like God is blessing me right now by having this conversation with you.  I truly would rather see if she has any food that will go to waste and is fresh.  Isn't Fettuccine Alfredo a bit heavy on such a hot day?"

Him: "Buy me food and God will bless you."

Me: Walks away.  "Have a good day."

Guy that just finished singing karaoke

"You are so beautiful. I'm not hitting on you.  If I was still alive I would, but I'm a fucking dead soul."

Online dating: weird and cute

Overheard at a lunch counter waiting for food

Two men were discussing their wives pregnancies and how their lives were about to change...

"Yeah man, I have friends that are in their 40's and traveling the world.  I mean at some point you just have to start the next chapter.  How many times can you visit the pyramids?  Next trip what's he gonna do?  CLIMB the pyramids?!"

"I know guys that have been around the world, but you can only do that so many times!"

"Yeah, it's gonna be good, but yeah take any trips you want to take now.  Everything changes."


"Different, but good."

"Next chapter of life."

"I feel like a grown-up now."

"People that don't have kids, I'm like...WHAT IS THE POINT? That's selfish."
