You, of all people, know how much I detest that hideous condominium project that sprouted up in the middle of my block. It’s not that it’s just so damned ugly. It’s not that it’s trying to outprice the working poor out of this neighborhood and create, yet another wealthy enclave. No, gentle readers, it’s their unbridled arrogance to name the project The Hollywood. That’s what makes my blood boil! That’s why I’ve always called that thing the Hubris. Hollywood isn’t just a town- it’s a concept, a dream, a complex thing of beauty that is uniquely American. If you were to ask any stranger on the street, “What does Hollywood mean to you?” I can assure you 100% they won’t describe anything close to this:
“Yeah, sure,” he shot back a deadpan reply.
“Then you’re crazy,” I said. I admit that my tone was a bit derisive.
“Are you an investor?”
“No,” he said, all the while taking his little pics.
“Don’t tell me you designed this hideous piece of shit?” I laughed
“Shut up!” he yelled at me.
