Crazy People

crazy-people

 

I could not love this picture any more. I crossed the street to take a shot of this canvas hanging on the back of a truck on West Broadway, and this guy stopped in front of it just as I was taking the picture.

Art is so often created by happenstance.

Walking down the street with me is not a bargain. Those who know me well know my famous, “Go ahead, I’ll catch up.” Those who love me unconditionally (AKA, offspring and BFFs) smile and know this is just the price to pay for hanging out with me. I make up for it in other ways. Those who are married to me (the subset of one) are incredibly tolerant and will even stand in a situation for my amusement (and theirs later on).

So, this image begs the question, “Why are crazy people such good lovers?” Here is a little exercise. Jump out of lurking mode (I know you are all there, I check the stats) and feel bad enough for my sorry ass to leave some comments answering to one or more of the following topics:

  1. Define crazy.
  2. Decide if this makes you more likely to admit that you are.
  3. In your experience, is there a direct correlation between being crazy and being a good lover?

Amuse me kiddies, I have had a tough few months!

Just pee on it and walk away

We came across this piece on the street and I am still wondering why I did not buy it. I am thinking I need to go back next Sunday in the hopes the vendor will be there.

I have read a lot of dog philosophy over the years, but none is quite as perfect as this.

Sometimes the king…

… is a woman.

I thought the saying was, ” If the Queen had balls she would be King”.

But this sign was found somewhere in the Village and many a queen has balls there, so I suppose this clarified it all.

My daughter sent me this picture on my phone late last night. I thought this was some performance art or protest that she was passing on the street and found it quite amusing.

Until this morning when it became infinitely more comical when she told me this was a sign that she and her friends found in the garbage and it was actually them who were holding it up for her to take the picture.

Yup, this one is my kid for sure. There is no denying that!
