Fragments from the Australia Diaries 2000 (part 11) - Bondi Junction


LOCAL DERO

I forgot to tell you about our local dero (Aussie slang for homeless person/derelict) he likes to sit outside Coles supermarket, when women go in he always, without fail, yells out “Baby, Baby, you’re Beautiful, Fantastic, Exquisite… Take me home and make mad passionate love to me”… hee hee.
It always cracks me up. He also likes to shout out random things (always pertaining to “making mad passionate love”). Lian and myself were passing him the other day and Lian was saying, “oh I don’t know”, talking about a job or something. The guy wakes up from his slumber and yells  “If you don’t know, just make mad passionate love to that man”.

If you've had a tough day, a visit to Coles will always make you smile.
