A True Thing That Happened A Year Or So Ago

I was in the line for the ATM at a local Hollywood shopping and movie plaza. Behind me is Leonardo DiCaprio. Suddenly he rushes over and stands directly to my left.

"Some woman over there keeps trying to take my picture," He says to me. I don't know how to respond. I sort of wish he asked me first before he decided I would be his human shield. There is a woman, she has a camera, and despite my overall opaqueness, she is still snapping away.

Leo is playing with something. "What's that you have there?" I ask, seeing as we're now close buddies who do favors for one another like block each other from cameras.

"It's a wind-up radio" he grumbles, as he winds it.

"Oh, that's useful. Because batteries are so scarce these days." I say.

He grunts something and goes back to winding. He doesn't want to talk to me at all. I thought we were pals, but apparently, we're not. He would just as soon have hid behind a pole (archectural or cultural).

And I thought we had something together. Ah well. And ladies, stop swooning, the guy looks like he's 13, for crying out pete. If you don't trust me, find the photos that lady took. He's the guy cowering behind the Opus.
