Santa Monica pier


The family took a small road trip to the Santa Monica pier today, lunching on bacon cheeseburgers and chili dogs by the oceanside with pigeons and seagulls running the same hustle for dropped fries.

At some point while Felix was making his rounds on a quarter machine elephant, a man was yelling desperately for his granddaughter pushing a stroller maxed out with arcade tickets.
.
.
A small girl sitting on a lion opposite Felix watched quietly as he called a name. When the man saw the small girl on the lion, he said, "There you are," then let out a "whoo!" The girl sat emotionless as if to say, "of course, I found another place to sit, since you took my seat."



Whatever that guy gets with what he said was "a thousand tickets!" I hope it not a beach-themed ashtray or a giant hot pink panda bear. I hope it's a Super Nintendo.
