I've met quite a few odd people in my time..
But one of recent memory was this guy, I'd say in his mid-twenties to thirties..& very weird.
A couple of weeks ago, I'd finished work & go to meet my cousin at a pub in the city centre for a quiet drink, when he was done driving his sister
back to hers.
So while I wait at the pub, I ordered 2 beers & drank while I waited for him.
I went out for a cigarette outside, but before I even lit one up.. this dude walks past the pub, wearing a big poppy in his hat, rucksack on his back
& orange & pink make-up all over his face (resembling The Joker from Batman, which was weird since he even made a reference about himself as The
So he stops suddenly in his tracks & looks at me, staring me down. I look back without saying anything, to which he says, "What's up man! Why so
sad?". I initially tried to ignore him, & carry on smoking..But he'd then come closer & continue talking not very coherently..or making much
I continued trying to ignore this guy with a face-full of make-up, & someone who showed signs of mental illness, or drug addiction..But he actually
cracked a joke, which I couldn't help but smile about it.
He then politely asked if he could grab a seat with me outside, which I replied "it's a free country".
From what I made out, he lived & had a rough time in another city, so was here with some "friends".
He'd then pull out a bunch of papers & a pen, & begin quickly sketching me, as I sat there smoking!
I felt uncomfortable, so began get my things & head back in the pub to wait for my cousin (who actually bumped into him & had a little argument, after
he tried touching my cousin's head for no apparent reason lol).
Before I even finished my cigarette, he finished the sketch of me..& surprisingly, it was a very good drawing for a 3-minute job!
A sad story of someone with a bit of artistic talent, wondering the streets..But definitely one of, if not the weirdest I've ever met.
