I have a cold. Which super sucks, because I am NEVER good with a cold. I feel like the congestion is blocking my true brain power. Someone asked me a question at work today and I was like, "What did I say about that yesterday? Just use that answer. I have no idea what I'm thinking today."
Two bumperstickers during the same Monday morning commute on the JamaicaWay:
"I couldn't go to church because I was too busy practicing witchcraft and becoming a lesbian."
"Impeach the Punk-Assed Dictator."
They both made me LAUGH SO HARD. I had to leave myself voice notes on my cell phone so I wouldn't forget. The punk-assed one was on an old, family Volvo loaded with kids and a carseats and a real "we're on the way to school" kind of look. Which made it even better.
Also. Quote of the month said to me on River Ave. in Cambridge as I was driving home from a reading and about to run into a black kid sitting on the handlebars of a bicycle while his buddy, blind to traffic by having someone sitting on his handlebars... pedaled in my direction:
"WHOA! WHITE GIRL!"
That just made me laugh hysterically. I don't know if the kid was yelling to his friend, "hey there's a white girl!" or yelling to me (the white girl) to whoa."
I dunno. I think I like the latter interpretation. White Girl.
Whoa, White Girl.
Wouldn't that make a great anthology title?
