home with nothing to do. I might be waiting for someone, or I’m just bored. Sometimes I’m with someone and we’re both bored.
So I invented a little game to amuse myself.
I sit in a public area, watch people walk past, then invent little backstories for them.
Might sound a bit weird, but stay with me.
For the most part, people are just noise. Walk around any public area like a park, in the city or really anywhere and I don’t really notice other people. but sometimes it’s fun to observe someone and apply a little cold reading to them. See what your imagination comes up with.
Sit in a busy area with lots of foot traffic. Somewhere that you can’t see people for too long. Also, seeing as it’s innocent people-watching, try not to wear a beige overcoat and hide in the bushes, that just looks suss.
Look around and pick a person, or a couple, or a family. Then, in the time it takes them to pass out of your line of sight, invent a backstory for them. Make it as believable AND as interesting as possible. Funny is also a plus.
That’s pretty much it. To make it more interesting, go round-robin with someone else, building a story between you about the person.
Try not to pick people that are too easy. Or, if you do, take the story on an unexpected tangent. So, if you spot a hot girl in workout gear running past with headphones in…
The backstory could go something like this.
Her name is Emma, she works as a garbage collector because she loves the hours. It gives her time to go running and listen to the complete encyclopedia as books on tape. She’s planning to go on a trivia show in America soon hosted by Steve Buscemi for a special charity drive. She’s obsessed with Steve and she’s hoping to impress him with her general knowledge.
Quirky, interesting and lets your imagination stretch its
legs a bit. Plus it’s free entertainment which, If you live in Sydney like I do, is hard to come by.
Give it a shot, let me know how you get on.
