Once I was in a Ralphs (I think it was a Ralphs) in West Hollywood
late one night/or even early in the wee hours of the morning.

There was this strange disheveled woman pushing her cart around.
I was so intrigued, I looked into her cart.
All she had in her cart were OREOS and CONDOMS.

That's when I decided....I wasn't in Illinois any more.
Hehe! That's classic.

I remember being in my early 20s and after clubbing or whatever, stopping at a 7-11 in Hollywood at 3am to grab a soda-- and not being fazed by one of the customers walking in, who looked like a homeless bum but was wearing a pink tutu; does that make me a true Angeleno? Only in LA. Hehe and yet if you were to wear the suit, tie and fedora to a 7-11, again, I'd think you were eccentric. Go figure.
