They say “I hella heart Oakland” and it never stops amazing me how many of the durn things I sell in Los Angeles…tons of Oakland lovin’ peeps wandering around L.A.
But Last week at Felt Club I sold one thats going home…and this is how the conversation went…
Hipster Girl: Oh, I gotta get one of these for my brother!
Me: Yeah, does he live in Oakland?
Hipster Girl: Um, not really…sort of
Me: ok… (puzzled pause)
Hipster Girl: Well, he’s a Mormon Missionary assigned to Oakland.
Me: (choking on my Mango Frostee from 7-11 my boy brought me) Really!
Hipster Girl: Yep.
Me: Is he on a bicycle? (which really sends me over the edge, a mental picture of this Mormon Missionary boy riding all over Oakland wearing a “I Hella Heart Oakland” button on the lapel of his suite jacket!)
Hipster Girl: Yep, he’s on a bicycle!
Me: Oh, Awesome!
She bought the button to mail to him. Excellent!
