Vince is originally from Sarasota, but moved to Chicago. After four years he got smart and moved back. He liked Chicago for it's vibrancy – and more employment opportunities. “Sarasota is more laid back. Venice is REALLY laid back. He was lucky to find work at Trader Joe's, a grocery chain.
Alaina, my Stranger #428 also works at Trader Joe's. Vince knows her well, and thinks that she's “really neat.”
