Spotted: at Bedford and 7th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Hey! You look amazing. Can I take a picture of you for our style section?
[Knowingly smiles.] Yeah, but not by the bodega.
You're so right. Let's cross the street. Where are you headed tonight?
I don't know! I'm supposed to meet my friend, but my phone is dead!
Oh no! All dressed up and nowhere to go! So where are you from?
I grew up in Flatbush Brooklyn, went to high school in Bedstuy, but I'm studying Psychology at Buffalo State. I'm back for the summer—I head upstate again in August.
So what are you listening to right now?
[laughs, embarrassed.] Oh god, I'm not, I'm weird.
What do you mean?
All I do is get high and watch anime.
Oh, wow. Do you ever watch Adventure Time?
Yeaahhh! That shit is trippy. Cartoon Network is amazing.
I feel bad you can't find your friend! Should we grab a beer together?
Nah, it's cool. I think I'm just gonna head back home.
And watch anime?
[laughs.] Ha, yeah, you know it!
