Minutes From A New York Writer’s Workshop

This may become a feature…we’ll see. But it’s dawned on me, though making copious mental notes of all I see, I’m not always quick on the draw dialogue wise, wading through and wasting, some of the best lines overheard ever.

On my way to work, I was accompanied by a couple on the corner waiting for the light to change. They were obviously tourists the way they were dressed. She in a short, short black leather skirt two sizes too small for a rather beefy bod, beneath a massive orange and navy polka-dotted sweater…boots…a brown leather vest. The guy, who looked like a terrified Iggy Pop…skinny…greasy hair with his hands dug so deep into his jean pockets he could have disappeared right into the sewer. Not that I blamed him, she scared the shit out of me too the way she was carrying on.

Couldn’t quite figure out why she was so mad since I missed the first act, but her finale hit a grand slam.

As we crossed East 79th, walking backwards like a coked up Navy Seal, she made a fist, aimed it at Iggy and said…

“Ah ate yooo…yooo, stu-ped mutha-fooker ax-cuse fa a luva (here it comes)

If ya wa a fooken fia…ah woo-den poot ya ah-oot.”

Fook yeh!!!

About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

    Delightful folk! Reminds me of my favourite insult: “I wouldn’t cross the road to piss in your ear if your brains were on fire”.

  2. You can always tell the tourists, can’t you? In San Diego, it would be a cold day and the locals all were dressed for winter and then you would see the tourists, sleeveless tops, shorts and sandals… you knew they were freezing and yet there they were in CA! Love the dialogue, cannot wait for more! Hope today is better.

    Good lord, you will have to include a glossary for these tourists! I get the gist of it though.

    People have to work hard to surprise me, Susannah. Although I am still often entertained by their antics. I worked as a welfare examiner for six years back in the late seventies and early eighties.
    Love the dialogue.
