As I was leaving the beach on Sunday, I noticed this "situation" in between the sand and Casa Del Mar. I couldn't help myself, I had to walk up to them and ask what they were doing (and of course take a few pictures). They said they didn't have any special training, they were just two people giving their opinion on anything anyone asked. Come again? So you mean to tell me, you're just sitting here, getting asked questions by strangers, giving your advice, and they're TAKING IT??? I couldn't believe it. When I asked them why, they said "because it's fun". Well, I guess everyone gets their kicks in different ways, but this wouldn't exactly be my idea of fun. Not to mention, who would want to be advised by two random middle-aged men (with no special training), sitting on the Santa Monica beach? As I moved on with my day, I couldn't help but wonder, what makes advice valuable to people. Is it a reliable source? A masters degree in psychology? Or is it just a friendly face offering you something for free? What do you think? Would you take advice from these guys?
On a separate note, Fabsugar featured me again yesterday as their "Look of the Day"! Read their post here. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
