B!tch on the Street

Days and nights in New York City are tough enough without having to deal with all the sh!t this city dishes up. B!tch on the Street tells the tale of two ladies making their way through this crazy town...one freak at a time.

***Watermelon Watch 2006***

This is normally Pookie's gig, but I had a confirmed sighting kids!

Last NIGHT (I'm talking like 9:00pm) a friend and I were coming from dinner and were walking towards the nearest 6 train entrance.

I was yammering on and on and suddenly he said, "Oh. My. God." and stopped me with the old mom's-arm-across-the-chest-when-the-car-stops-quickly move.

"What?" I asked, kind of annoyed.

"Look!" he exclaimed.

And there she was. In a Starbucks. Nowhere near the Starbucks where Pookie has been seeing her. LWL. That's right, Linda, the Watermelon Lady.

"Get your phone!" my friend cried. "Hurry! She's finishing up!"

Sure enough she was. I got the phone and whipped it out as fast as I could. What you see here (admittedly, not my best camera phone work) is LWL putting her watermelon (it was about 1/4 a watermelon), with plastic utensils and all, into a bag. You can make out the red and green (and white) clearly.

She is most likely homeless, but definitely crazy. She had all sorts of bags full of sh!t beside her and her hair was all jammed up.

She is now a NYC phenomenon.

Thanks, Linda.

she is famous. Everytime I see *watermelon watch* i get a little exctied. How far away was she from her normal Starbucks?

Yeah, she is famous. I'm not sure how she'll feel about being the famous personality of Watermelon Watch. But if either of you can try and break the ice and get her story that would be awesome. If she suffers from mental illness I would think there are a few non-profits in NYC that might be able to help her.
