forget who said it. maybe they all did.
but it is hard to look at a kickass swimming pool
or a shiny car with a Star Wars dashboard
or a puppy smoking a cigar with a kitten being dealt blackjack by a baby mule with a garter around his bicep
and not say, why yes, I want that.
I want that very much.
one of the nice things about living in LA is you get to watch people get the things
in some cases all the things
and then still not be happy.
you also get to be friends with kids of parents who got that pool or monkey or dinosaur
and deep down all they really wanted was
it was probably like this way back in the dark ages too.
but its fascinating to watch people keep doing the same thing
keep hitting on 19
even though the dog barks
and the mule snorts.
