Promises Message

Yesterday I ate an individually-wrapped Dove chocolate. On the inside of these candies' foil wrappers are little inspiring phrases called Promise Messages, not unlike the messages you find in fortune cookies, only written by Hallmark. Stuff like "Smile before bed, you'll sleep better" or "Write a letter, not an email" and crap like that. The message I got however was slightly disturbing:

"Age is nothing but a number."

I know what they're trying to say (you're only as old as you feel), but I think there are some people currently in jail who took this philosophy a little too literally.

You Don't Deserve To Know

T overheard the following conversation from a bitchy woman on her cell phone, just before getting hung-up on.

Before I tell you what I have to say, not that you deserve to know what I have to say... Why don't you want to know what I have to say?

Driving home from our friends Amy and Bill's place where Teresa and I selflessly volunteered to help Amy study for her massage school by subjecting ourselves to back and arm massages, we passed by I-5 ramp in Wallingford. We heard loud clanging, and turned to see a dozen men all dressed in suits of armor swordfighting in the park and ride.

Deaf, Dumb and Blind

I was walking to the bus stop behind a man with a white cane and wearing a button that read "I am deaf and blind". The man stopped at an intersection, fished in his pockets for some change, then turned to the newspaper box next to him and bought a paper. He then turned around and walked past me (without using the cane), stuffing the newspaper into his jacket.

Odd Sighting Of The Day

On my walk home from the bus stop, I crossed a downtown street in front of a 2004 Jaguar XK, a particularly expensive British sports car. I turned my head to admire this vehicle, and see what kind of person an XK owner is. Perhaps an older, distinguished gentleman? Maybe a young thirtysomething dot com millionaire? Maybe even an important-looking business woman on her way home from the office?

He was middle aged with a receding hairline and fluffy white hair. Our eyes never met because he was too distracted trying to light his enormous corn-cob pipe.
