people watching is probably one of my favorite activities. not that i have time to do it often, but when i am at an airport or waiting in line at a mall, i love to check out the walking/talking scenery.
i'm hanging out at Panera in Kingstowne... these are three tables immediately surrounding me.
exhibit a. two exceptionally caucasian young guys with dreadlocks sitting behind me. smiled at me when i sat down. nowadays, not everyone has the time to smile at others (much less make eye contact). so i chalked them up as seemed like nice guys. as soon as i sat down, i heard they were talking about explicit drug use, options for reform in cooperation on wall street, and Cambodia? got up to refill my coffee, came back, and they had out french language worksheets and are speaking horribly mispronounced french.
exhibit b. gentleman comes down and sits at the table next to me... totally looking like a hobo in a holey Michigan State jacket, worn out knitted cap, and dragging a rolling cart. i'm pretty sure i even caught a whiff of a "i haven't showered for several days" stench. looked like he was homeless and stealing wifi. took off his outerwear and he has on an expensive suit! then, started making calls to his secretary for his upcoming trial where he's representing a doctor for medical malpractice.
exhibit c. two middle aged professionals sitting at a table with stark white shirts and simple black ties. but they are with a super hot older greek woman! thought they were salesmen or those guys who ride bikes and deliver bibles (wasn't too far off). they are elevator salesmen and they are interviewing the greek woman (who is wearing killer heels!). apparently elevator sales is a pretty high paying job - from what I can't help but hear.
