Susan, Sophia and I went out to lunch at a little Thai food place in Beachwood Canyon. We were among only one other table of people in the restaurant, which was a relief with a two year-old. Sophia looks over at the table across the restaurant and says “Hi!” and they didn’t reply back -preoccupied with conversation, so she says a little louder “Hello!” Again, no response. She then, in a much louder voice, says “Salutations!”
The hipster LA crowd finally looked over, smiled, and said “Hello.” Even our 2 year-old has to pull out an SAT word to get attention from the Angelenos.
