25052Not a story or a silly log but an observation
- Mar 3, 2008You may or may not know that we are from Washington state. The
Pacific Northwest, like Austin, tends to be a goofy place. It's not
that people intend to be goofy they just do stuff that, outside of
Austin or here, would get them some sideways glances.
Over the weekend I had the chance to say "I love the Pacific
Northwest" three times because of our brand of goofballs.
First we are parked in a hardware store parking lot and next to us is
a newer Ford Ranger. Very nice condition and clipped (with paper
clips) to the rubber around his driver's side window is a meat
Coming out of the parking lot, this would be the second one, we had a
car in front of it with a shaggy white dog hanging out the driver's
side. We are big dogs-hanging-out-of-a-car people so we watched and
enjoyed the dog enjoying the breeze. We pull up beside her and the
dog, mid-size, is sitting in her lap and she's smoking a big cigar.
Lastly we drop by friends of ours, (Howard... it's Jan and Dennis)
and I have to say that these people are very upright, proper,
everyting in it's place, very nicely dressed, don't go out doing
weird stuff, sort of like they are everyone's grandparents... and in
the bathroom sitting on the lip of the tub is a beer!
I know most of you can't appreciate that last one but Howard can.
I love how weird this place is. I love being surprised by goofy stuff.
How about you guys? Seen any goofball stuff like this?
