Crazy goings on
July is crazy days! More than any other month, save the nights when we have a full moon, do I see more crazy things.
In the last week, I have had two little girls come running by the store in the park screaming loud enough to shake windows a block away.
Following them, two little boys each holding a snake. Oh, the snakes were not 6- foot cobra's but rather 6-inch garter snakes, still the effect was the same.
I had a young man pull up in his new car. I asked him what the sign said on his car. He said "a for sale sign."
I said, "you just bought that car two weeks ago." He then said, in two weeks, he has gotten more than $500 in speeding fines and his parents are making him sell the car!"
I had a lady come up and tell me she had a nice 50-foot hose stolen from her yard and it was even hooked up and in use at the time. Laughing, she said there was a hundred bucks in tools laying around but they took a hose?
The craziest thing this week however was going to one of my part-time jobs at midnight and driving down the alley to the back of the bakery.
There was a young couple in the middle of the alley and you couldn't slide a butter knife between them.
Now I have over the last 14 years seen young people use the alley for private meetings, but never have I had the two enjoying each others company with another young person about three feet away filming the event in the dim lit alley? July ain't even half done yet.
