New York continues to succeed in out-weirding itself. These two guys by the coffee shop (tall, thin and with identical haircuts) were acting as if they were aliens hiding in a human form. This was their actual conversation, spoken in weird monotone voices that sounds like they were avoiding any kind of accent:
Guy 1: I would enjoy leisure, but I have many errands today.
Guy 2: It is common for you, and me, and most people in this region to have errands.
Guy 1: But once my work is done, I will go back to the home where I live and have a great time. You are welcome too. To participate in leisure and unwinding.
Guy 2: Under different circumstances, but the wife and the kid wanted me inside later. It is very common for this to happen, as we know.
Guy 1: This was a [good] conversation.
I put “good” in brackets because that’s what I thought he must have said, but thinking back he may have actually said “This was a conversation.” I didn’t realize aliens lived in Brooklyn and try way too hard to convince people they’re having a normal human conversation! They also kind of looked and acted like the two alien tracker guys from Brother From Another Planet:
I was about to offer them help in finding plutonium for their craft and two healthy humpback whales, but they walked away before I could.
