CelebrityAre You Lost? Because Leo DiCaprio Would Be Glad to Help
Who needs Google Maps when you have a friendly neighborhood Oscar winner?
Imagine: you're on your first trip to New York, taking in a picturesque Hudson River sunset on a beautiful fall evening. Suddenly, it occurs to you: you're not exactly sure in which direction your hotel is. Your new phone (in the Verizon bag you're carrying, of course) isn't yet charged, and as you cautiously peer down unfamiliar street after unfamiliar street, frustration sets in.
It's time to ask for directions. You've heard that New Yorkers can be brusque, and loud, and even rude. (All the cursing in Wolf of Wall Street made you quite uncomfortable.) But wait. Look at that nice-looking gentleman in the cap and sunglasses! What an adorable little dog! How bad can anyone be with a pooch like that?
"Hello! Pardon me, sir?"
Such a polite young man. As it so happened, he wasn't quite sure, either! But he was happy to double-check on his phone. Really, no trouble at all, he explained. You didn't even mind the stray bit of steam from that funny little smoking contraption he had, or the gaggle of people taking photos in the background, either. Tourists, probably.
So far, everyone you've met this trip has been delightful, and your friendly Good Samaritan was no exception. Come to think of it, the only New York thing you've yet to experience is seeing someone famous doing Normal People Things. Kind of a letdown, to be honest.
You still have a few days to go, though. Keep your eyes peeled.
