I'm not the only one who sits in front of Bellagio fountains for an obnoxiously long period of time. There is always a varied assemblage of Batmen and Despicable Me Minions and showgirls and street magicians, and I have to admit, if I was going to be a busker, that's where I'd be too. But there is one that stands out. For the past couple months, every time I've gone, right in front of the center nook where I always stand is a man all in pink, his clothes frozen as if blowing in the wind, and he himself seems to be blown back, leaning impossibly on his heels. I haven't the faintest idea how he does it, but it is quite hilarious to watch people passing by, looking back, walking around him, some even going so far as to wave a hand under his rear to see if there's some invisible thing holding him up.
This last Saturday I took a Bellagio trip. I walked through the gardens and then went out to watch the fountains. I saw the familiar pink figure, but this time, it was a woman. She had star-shaped glasses and a pink pig-tail wig. She was in the exact same outfit otherwise (I'm pretty sure their ability to sit blown back like that has something to do with the pants, although I've seen them stand). Anyway, I had fun watching her and watching people watching her, like usual, and also had fun speculating about these two people.
And now I pass that speculating off to you. Given these two characters, what would you specifically do with them? If you were writing their story, what would it be? I love seeing how other people develop their story ideas, and I'm intrigued to see what you come up with. So why not, right? Give it a shot.
