Had a busy day running up to Evanston to work, picking up my son, going out to dinner with him and meeting Kim, Mel and some friends of ours for a movie. I was glad that I had my digital camera with me, because there were strange and amusing things around me all day.
First off, I stopped to put gas in my new used Toyota, and to make sure the tires had the proper pressure. As I was filling up at the combination air pump/vacuum cleaner, a guy in a van full of antiques pulled up. He walked up and put money in the vaccum cleaner half of the machine. I wondered how he was going to vaccum his van-- with my car in front of the machine, his van was parked too far to vacuum the inside of his van.
As I filled the tires of my car, I realized the he was vacuuming himself.
I cannot, for the life of me, imagine what that was about.
As I drove to pick Adam up, I realized that I was near a grocery store that carries a product I love-- a gluten-free pizza dough mix. I have celiac disease and can't have anything with wheat in it. I'm due for a pizza soon. As I walked back to my car, I noticed this sign on another car.
Okay, I've got some problem-- a missing cat, I want to find a long-lost old friend, find my lost car keys or whatever, and what do I do? Call a psychic whose car I saw in a parking lot.
I also stopped to buy a new winter coat and get some new wiper blades, I noticed a store in the parking lot that I'd been in many times before, but had never noticed-- Napolean's Tailor. Apparently, it's a clothing store for short guys. Then I noticed this sign by the door:
Did you see anything that amused you today?
