Rowdy asks McConaughey about his present roster of Airstreams. (He’s been amassing them for years and now owns 4.) A businessman taking part in hooky inquires about an look the actor made on the Golf Channel. A British girl apologizes for the interruption, then introduces her small, scruffy canine. She asks for an image.
“No, no, no,” McConaughey says. “I’m native,” pointing throughout the lake. “You’ll see me once more.” A person with arms and arms lined in white paint approaches from the again of the bar.
“Whoa!” He stops in his tracks.
“Yeah!” McConaughey says.
He says his title is Glenn Washington. New on the town from Detroit. Has a gig portray a home down the highway. Says he’s buddies with NFL gamers again residence, however he’s by no means been this starstruck.
“Man. Oh dude. You gotta say one factor for me.” McConaughey has a half smile; he is aware of what’s coming; he’s simply ready for it, hit me.
“You bought a joint?” Washington says.
“Be rather a lot cooler for those who diiiid,” McConaughey retorts.
Fist bump. Laughter.
“Oh man. Oh dude,” Washington says. “That is loopy. Thoughts blown.”
Washington makes the “exploding” hand movement at each of his temples, then staggers again and does it once more. “Craziest second in my life,” he says, strolling away.
This sort of encounter is nothing new to McConaughey. He’s been repeating it for precisely 25 years, since Dazed and Confused hit theaters in the summertime of 1993 and his character, David Wooderson, the hanger-on townie, the stoned philosopher-poet of the car parking zone, uttered the actor’s most well-known strains— “be rather a lot cooler for those who did,” “simply maintain livin’,” “all proper, all proper, all proper”—most of which he improvised.
