I am starting to believe Linda's theory that my car is sprinkled with fairy dust or something. Mainly because it does seem like I see an awful lot of weird things while I'm driving. And they never cease to amuse me.
Yesterday I was driving along and stopped at a light not far from where I saw the lady with the monkey in my road construction story. I glanced in my rear view mirror and was delighted to see a lady who seemed to be fond of Chihuahuas. So much so that she had decorated her car with Chihuahuas. Lots of Chihuahuas. She had three Chihuahuas on the dash in varying sizes, one pink, one blue and one that was of course the ever popular tan fuzzy kind with the bobble head that the dollar store sells. She had a yellow one hanging on the rearview mirror and a bunch of transparent cling on Chihuahuas arranged artfully on her windows. But the one that really got me was the one hanging from her passenger side visor. It was about the size of an adult's fist and it was just a head. A head of a Chihuahua. I couldn't help but wonder if it was a warning to all of the other Chihuahuas…….
While I was thinking this thought and grinning, I came around the corner and saw a really beat up car that was held together by duct tape. Literally. He even had a sign. "This car is held together with duct tape, spit and the prayers of my mother." I was SO sad that traffic was moving cause boy did I want a picture of that. I'll be keeping an eye out for him again and with any luck his mom's prayers work long enough for me to get a photo to share with you guys.
Then….and I know it's Halloween time and all….I was gobsmacked to see Death standing on the side of the road holding a sign. I've altered the sign since what Death had to say would have scared ya'all……and I just want you to know……I remained calm, even when he waved at me. [shudder]
