im going to write about what happened to me today whoa
so i went down to hillcrest (this awesome neighborhood in SD) and i walked around and got a new moleskine and just hung out alone for a while
then i went and sat in whole foods to sketch because it was air conditioned. this guy, probably about 45 or 50, comes up and comments on my sketch and asks if i want to read his ‘hood poetry.’ so of course i say yes because hood poetry, and it turns out that the poem was about jesus and his sister and used masturbation as a metaphor…i…yeah…and then he gave me a cd of his music oh my gosh it’s like rap/r&b-ish it’s pretty funny and not that bad actually. so then he asked me where i was from and when i said coronado he was all “OHHH SPOILED RICH MILITARY BRAT!” and i explained that i wasn’t like that, and he asked me what i liked to do so i said hiking and drawing and stuff and he started talking about how i should stick to that and not be like “one of those white girls in the hood that tries to be black.” then he left, and so i kept walking around.
i came across this dude who looked about 27 (who i later found out was in his 30s) who had one of those cardboard asking for money signs. i told him i didnt have change to spare but i had some time and that i’d love to hear his story. so i sat on the curb with him and he told me all about how he wanted to get home to arizona, and what he thought about all the areas of SD, and how san francisco is amazing. we sat there for about 40 minutes and just talked about people and how strange people are and about art and music. it was actually really cool, his name was rex (which he explained meant king in latin)
then i started walking through this park and i sat down and this dude that looked like a skinny zach galafanakis in TIIIINY booty shorts and a half-buttoned shirt comes up to me and starts asking me for girl advice?? but i think he just wanted to sound impressive because all he did was explain how hes hot and could get girls but they were intimidated by him and how he liked my walk or something weird. and then towards the end he was like “i think you have high functioning autism. you seem autistic, dont take that the wrong way. have you heard of asbergers?” and i was like ooHH MY GOD THATS WHY YOU DONT GET GIRLS you dont just diagnose people with autism oh my goDDDD so then i left and now i’m gonna go make s’mores with alyy
