We were out the other night and in the space of about five minutes we interacted with an interesting little bunch of people. Maybe we were on candid camera or something.
We were standing on the footpath and first along were two gay men who walked by and flirted with Daz then giggled as they walked off because he always gets a bit flustered when that happens.
Then the drunkiest drunk girl I’ve seen for a long time stumbled by. We watched her coming up the street for a while, I think we heard her first. She had totally inappropriate drinking shoes on and was clumping along, weaving all over the footpath and when she reached me she tripped stepping down the gutter but I caught her. She was so cold, her arms were freezing. Daz put her shoe back on and I wanted to take her home but Daz said that would probably be classed as an abduction so I asked her if she was okay and she said she was and so off she went again.
Then we were discussing if we should wait for a taxi or go to the bus stop and this guy sitting in his car overheard us and said where did we want to go and how much would we pay him to drive us there and I thought, yeah right mate, I bet that’s what all the serial killers say.
So we said, no thanks, and I was looking up the street at drunky girl and then this car pulled up right in front of us which was just like the kind that serial killers drive. Well Australian serial killers anyway. Australian serial killers in movies. They all seem to drive utes that have a closed in back, usually closed in with green canvas stuff. Anyway this ute/truck thing pulls up right nearly on top of our toes and the back door opens and it was like one of those ads where all the clowns climb out of the buggy except these were drunk teenage boys and a couple of girls. And all these empty smirnoff and jim beam cans and bottles rolled out onto the road (which they picked up) and then the ute drove away and they all stood there deciding where they were going to go and how much money they all had and when I looked back drunky girl was gone.
And then our taxi pulled up.
I hope she made it home okay.
