Sketchy Things I Saw Today

  • A dude in a huge bulging leather jacket and baggy pants. It's almost 30 degrees out. I first see him as I'm waiting for a light to change. He goes out of his way to cross against the red light to continue along my side of the street. The next block down, he crosses to the other side of the street (where he could have crossed with a green light before). Ok, maybe he's just dumb. But then later, he crosses again, back to my side. I don't know what he was hiding under that jacket, but my guess is it was 100% pure grade-A sketchiness. Covered in sweat.
  • An old guy at the gym, explaining to another guy who is visibly uncomfortable, all about yeast and other aspects of brewing beer, while completely naked. Jesus, it takes two seconds to put pants or a towel on; there is no reason to be naked for more than a few seconds in the change room, let alone carry on a conversation like that. I'm not uncomfortable with nudity or anything, but when old wrinkly man-ass is completely not necessary, I prefer not seeing it to seeing it.
  • Über-celebrity David Patchell-Evans (who is so famous that we here at Phronk.com have mentioned him twice), walking through Galleria. I must have automatically smiled a bit at him as the recognition dawned on me, because he gave me this awkward half-wave thing.

You saw David Patchell-Evans, Im jealous. Hmm.... did you see Hal Johnson Jo-anne McCloud too?

If I saw them, I'd scream like a teenage girl at a Justin Timberlake concert.

Von said...

Haha - the comments are awesome and bring back (good? bad? neutral?) memories of Body Break. Love it.

P.S. Can you get David Patchell-Evans to sign my "Living the Good Life" book? LOL. Yes I have one. I even won a year's membership to Good Life and a t-shirt along with it. I didn't want any of those things...but oh well.

"If I saw them, I'd scream like a teenage girl at a Justin Timberlake concert."

Is that how you normally scream?

Just asking.

Phronk said...

Haha sure Von, I'll just ask him next time I see him. We're good buddies now. That's a pretty sweet package though...the membership is worth a lot of money given what they charge nowadays. And that book can change your life.

Mitzzee: Sure is! And rare here in London.

Kevbo: Normally I scream in a very masculine way. Hal just makes me lose control.

Old naked guys at the gym are awful. There is a reason I bought an elliptical for my house.
