Heading into the Santa Monica Pier we can already smell the sea within the breeze. We can see all the people enjoying their time with family and friends in the pier. It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining, birds flying and stealing unwatched food. As we walk into the pier and see the guests on the pier enjoying each other’s company, we all decided to ask around if we can do a quick interview for our English class project.
As we asked around most people gave us a dirty look perhaps because they felt weird or thought we were crazy for asking. So we kept asking around and a few people were nice enough to give us a bit of their time. We luckily found a couple who were nice enough to give us a few minutes of their time. As we approached them the girl was calm about it and her boyfriend not so much, it seemed that he was uncomfortable. They looked like if they were in their early 20’s. Isaac, the boyfriend was skinny and tall, looked like a soccer player. He wore a black and white striped shirt with baggy pants. Katie, the girl, was a punk rock chick with a shirt that showed a bit of her stomach and some beige caprice.
