I’m fairly lax with my usage of the English language, butchering a sentence here, misspelling a word there, crapping on formality and pissing on good taste pretty much all over the place. Like just right there. It’s ok, my mom doesn’t object. My dad hasn’t complained either. Thus I can give some leeway in ill-used definitions of words, assuming you are not trying to be a dick by saying Echo Park is part of the Eastside. But even I have my limits.
Check out the Hollywood video on N. Broadway advertising their fabulous “Indoor Sidewalk Sale” which promises “DVD’S” (ha!) at 3 or 4 bucks each, give or take a penny. When the first Indoor swap meets came around, that was a stretch, but yeah, they kinda were. I was less tolerant of a big Yard Sale being held indoors, but maybe these people just didn’t know better. Now a major corporation advertises for a sidewalk sale, inside their store. Isn’t that just the same sale bin they always have inside? Come on now, just because some of us in LH aren’t so up on our English skills doesn’t mean you can play all loose with those words we keep meaning to learn. We ain’t that stupid.
Next yer gonna tell me about a restaurant serving street food indoors! Ha, ha! What? Oh, you mean yer serious?
I’m gonna try to remember to stop being shocked by how stupid shit is.
