I Couldn’t Make This Up
In honor of Mondays, which are truly absurd, I am sharing a few absurd headlines I saw today.
Kelly Osbourne’s Puppy Dies
Palin Compares Herself to Shakespeare
Celebs Reflect on Mandela’s Birthday
Spears ~ Good Role Model For Troubled Lohan
And, in other absurd news…
Standing on the bricks of Pioneer Square, waiting for the train home, I watched a flamboyant, young man with long hair, no shirt and skinny jeans strutting around in some sort of Vogue-ish dance ~ slash ~ catwalk…thing. People sat on the steps watching him as if they had paid admission. Actually, in their defence, it was hard NOT to watch him. He was quite the attraction for a few minutes. A security guard stopped in his tracks and stared in disbelief, no doubt trying to decide whether to stop the show. He finally shook his head and moved on. A little boy burned off some pent-up energy, running circles around the fancy dancer and chasing pigeons into the air. When I finally turned away to peer down the line at the approaching train, I chuckled to myself and thought, ‘I can’t make this stuff up!’
