drunk on sparxxxx or whatever
For the past week or so I've been moving stuff out of my apartment in Escondido into a new apartment in San Diego proper. There's a coffee shop across the street and, if I need to get out of the house, I go there to work. Last week I was there with a coworker when some boisterous person came in channeling Muhammad Ali yelling all about how he's the best, the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be - apparently in reference to nothing. The best at nothing in particular. Of yelling randomly in coffee shops I guess.
I think it was this guy. This guy walks down the street "singing" at the top of his lungs. But he does sing pretty good. Today I found out he does something else. I heard yelling in a half yell / half soul-R&B kind of way ("yeaaaaaahhhhhhuhuhuhhhh" / not lil jon) and checked it out through the blinds. So this guy is walking around across the street apparently drunk off of Sparxx or whatever. He was just standing on the side of the road. So I watch for another minute until I figured out what was going on. Check it. He turns and chills with his back to the street when he hears a car coming. Letting the car think he's just a guy standing there. Wrong. Apparently he's a freak R&B talent. When the car drives by they figure that out because he does a spin move, a fully legit spin move, raises his one hand in triumph, let's out a soul/R&B yell ("yeaaaaaahhhhhhuhuhuhhhh"), and then goes into his kind of "gotcha" pose. Photos attached. I took a cell phone video but he sauntered off by the time I could grab my real digital camera. He shocked about 6 drivers while I was watching. Hopefully I see more of this...
