The lone chip drinker
Ever since I started noticing the phenomenon of people drinking the last crumbs from their chip bag, I see it everywhere. It is rare that I actually videotape it–which is probably a good thing.
But several weekends ago I saw this man, and the opportunity was too good to pass up. He took several long, sustained gulps, so I had enough time to capture them on film. I don’t know why but I find a sort of poignancy in this video image, a man, by himself on a Saturday night trying to get those last crumbs out of a bag of Cheetos. This is what being alone in the modern city looks like.
