Overheard in L.A.

25 Jun

I spend a lot of time at Coffee Commissary. It contains predominantly morose-looking screenwriter aspirants typing away furiously in Final Draft. Occasionally there's someone with a graduate school psychology textbook and a highlighter. Pretty often though, some people are on a weirdly revelatory first (or second, or third) date, right in earshot of me.


Here's today's nugget:

Man: Do you ever have times in your life when up is down, when in is out?
Woman: Yeah, totally! Right now I feel like George Constanza, like I should do the opposite of everything I think I should do.
Man: I KNOW, RIGHT? [uproarious laughter]

Los Angeles is a great place to have an existential crisis, but sometimes I just get tired of hearing about everyone else's.
