the art car parade
why walk when you can drive a fish, putter along in a UFO, or drag garbage cans behind your bike? here are a few of the arted-up wheelables from the annual art tougeau parade on saturday - i felt so ordinary walking home on my two boring feet after that.
and now - it's time to reveal the fake. the naughty words about the garbage truck were mine. i put my art stuff on the roof of my car one day, forgot about it, took off, and came back just in time to watch the garbage truck run over it all.
everything else i overheard: i won't ever know why that guy walking around the lake won't have dr. pepper with lunch again, why that student was feeling fairly groovy when he strolled into z's divine espresso, or what kind of strange things happen in georgia. the piehole incident - yes! - did occur, a lovely exchange between someone who was trying to cross the street and a distracted motorist who only noticed her when he was in the middle of the intersection.
pklaw and doug, since neither of you underestimated my ability to swear at a garbage truck, i'll give you each a print. and since you were all good sports to hazard guesses, i used the random number generator to pick one more winner. yay, it is #5 (fruenswerk), which is so fitting because she started the weekword game. winners, please e-mail me your print choice and i'll get it to you pronto!
