Just thought I'd share

FDA, finally, approves cloned food. Check out this one people. How nice of the FDA to join us here in the 21st century on something.

It's the end of 2006, thank god, and it's time to reflect upon all of the ludicrous things that I have seen and done this year. One main story comes to mind for the moment.

This tale is one about a fine sunny day in the Spring. I pulled up to my favorite coffee shop with an ice cream cone in hand and ready to pick up a paper as soon as I could find a parking spot. After a few crafty maneuvers at an adjacent parking lot, I pulled forward to take my position in the exit. A woman walking down the sidewalk stopped about 20 feet back from the driveway. An action I understood to mean she wanted me to go ahead, which I did. I proceeded to pull up to the same side of the street the woman had been walking (a one way street if you're trying to picture it). Since it was an unusually warm day, my passenger side window was down. While I fiddled around looking for change to feed the meter, the woman walking down the sidewalk stuck her head into my car through the passenger side window and just started screaming at me.

I just sat there in shock while she bobbed her head like a chicken inside my car, complete with all of the good descriptive expletives. Then she continued to walk down the street as if nothing had occured. Because I have absolutely zero self control, I jumped out of my car and ran after her. She had gained some ground by the time I was running in her direction. But, once the light turned green, I caught up with her on foot. Oh, I should mention that I was screaming at her all the while, "Come back here! What did you say to me, bitch?!!!?" Yup, screaming this at the top of my lungs in the middle of the street, in front of my favorite coffee shop. Lovely. I'm gonna make a great role model for my child.

Lunacy at its best.

I like the imagery of the bobbing chicken head. Of course that's easy to say from way over here! I wouldn't like it one bit in my car.

Aurelia said...

Oooh, I hate car arguments like that one. What the heck was wrong with her to yell at you in the first place?

Ol' Lady said...

Power windows would have been good...just up the window on her chicken neck!
I for one am proud that you chased her down, I would have.
Hope all of your dreams and wishes come true in 2007.

Dino aka Katy said...

well I think I would have wanted to find out what her issue was too. Finished our tag

And then what happened??!! Did she turn around? Did you beat her up? (I would've)

I too liked the image of the bobbing chicken head.

And don't get hung up on the word "best" for my list: it can be any post that you're particularly fond of from your blog. Anything that sums up who you are or what was happening to you in 2006.

I have had more moments, that I would like to remember. Not to worry, children tend to make you too tired to have meaningless fights.

Not to mention, you never know who is carrying a knife, a gun or just forgot to take her meds for a week. It's better for children to have a live mother. I have learned to let certain things go.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know I change my URL because too many people I know in real life were reading my blog. I hope you'll still continue to read it though. I enjoy your comments!!

OH BOY, don't I hate it when I lose my self-control! LOL! YIKES!

You could have lopped the chicken head off and watched the chicken body run around like a chicken with it's head cut off, but then you'd have the chicken head and all that blood in your car. Oops, I didn't say that. I never said that. Oh God, did I really say that? Forget it, and go on as if it never happened. Boy, visual fantasies can be really grostesque.

What's with people? Did she ever give you an explaination? It would have been great if you had power windows:)

LOL! My son had a similar experience recently. He was sitting in Borders reading looking at a book and talking to a friend on the phone when he noticed a woman standing a few feet away from him talking. HE thought she was just talking to herself and while he DID think that was a bit weird, it IS D.C. after all... so he ignored it. But when his phone call ended and the woman was still talking he realized that she was talking TO him -- and she was THREATENING him!!! Yes indeed. She was threatening to put a CURSE on him because he was evil and wicked! He said he was tempted to say something to her -- but honestly he just wanted her to go away... so instead, he went away! LOL! Good boy!

Kristen King said...

What the heck??? Psycho! What exactly was she yelling, anyway? Did you figure it out?

We're all entitled to lose it every now and again. Because you regret it, that means you're not a total lunatic. ;]
