As I go around, I see a lot of things that catch my attention (holding it is another matter entirely); by this I mean things that are so out-of-place as to be interesting. If you ever glance at something, and then feel compelled to take a second look because something's not right, then you know what I mean.
Luckily, technology allows me to document them, since there is a camera built in to my cellular phone. Thirty years ago, I would have had to walk around with a big honking 35mm around my neck, like some sort of foreign tourist...not to mention the week-long wait for the film to be developed...all before I would even have known if I had a usable picture or a blurry close-up of my own thumb. Thanks be to technology!
Here is a sampling of oddities I have observed in the last several weeks:
|Seen in my local Target store...I wish I could shake the hand of whoever did this. The Dadaists would be proud.|
|Mascot in front of local Mom-and-Pop hamburger restaurant...which appears to have a whale-like blow hole?|
|Really, Bert and Ernie? After all the years of rumors swirling around you, did you REALLY think this was a good idea?|
