Searching for the Homeless

Tonight I ordered too much pizza at dinner (too much pizza is like a unicorn but since I'm heading out of town I didn't want leftovers in my fridge). As a "foodie" wasting food is NOT an option so I wondered Hollywood Blvd on foot looking for a hungry homeless person. I had to circle around a few times until I found an elderly man sleeping on a bench next to Burger King (when I ate meat I always preferred BK to McDonalds).

The man woke up when I got close to him, apparently the homeless have Spidey sense. He took the pizza and as I walked away I started to cry. I always cry when I see homeless people. It just doesn't make sense that some people in this world have so much and some have so little.

So remember hug your loved ones, always be charitable and order lots of pizza- pizza always makes everything better.

I agree, pizza makes all much better:D
I also feel so sorry for homeless people:(:(

Suzanna said...

Agreed. It's retarded that some people have a lot and some so little. You are sweet for thinking of those who have little. I suppose that is part of why I like you.

So when I hop over here, I'm expecting something light-hearted and funny, not heartfelt and serious....but I like heartfelt and serious too. Great post :-)

This has more to do with the last post but I just watched Wanted (thanks to the ticket you gave me at the SF meetup) and it was SERIOUSLY the best movie I've seen in theaters for YEARS. (to be fair I watch about three movies a year now)

At the beginning of the movie I was like "OH NO I MUST HAVE BLINKED because I didn't see Bridget Mcmanus" and felt kind of sad. And THEN there was the peanut butter and I was like "OMGGGG" and the scene was like "IT'S HER!" *blink blink blink blink * oh it's over :(

As short as it was, you looked awesome as always and I wish you could be in more things just so I could watch them :D

And my friend who I took was like "so what was your favorite part" and I HAVE TO SAY "seeing Bridget was my favorite part" :D

I <3 you Bridget!

end of long ass comment that is somewhat blog-length

i always try to give my leftovers to the homeless, too. there was one time i was wandering around old town pasadena and i was lookin' for someone who might want it. how 'bout i tried offering my food to someone who wasn't even homeless. they were chillin' on the sidewalk. oh the embarrassment...hey, i tried.

I remember this one time I was in Pasadena, and I was having a nap on the sidewalk and some crazy lady tried to give me some leftovers. She thought I was homeless. Wierd.

It was nice pasta though.

People would say this is just a drop in the bucket...but I think that if you can help, you simply should. Well done Bridget, a goodhearted and kind gesture. :)

Oh Bridget will you please adopt me if my mom disowns me when she finds out her car is severely dented?

Maria said...

That's a good thing to do, although I must admit that my attempts at such direct charity have failed miserably, like, they thought the food I offered was poisoned or something. I guess you must've looked really innocent, lol. Seriously though, this made me happy to read.

Oh and what's with the "drop in the bucket" expression? Where I come from we always say "a drop in the ocean". In that perspective, the bucket is much more optimistic.
