The Day After

As I sit and contemplate what to write, the wind is literally howling through the seams of my front door, sending shrieks and wailings that would make any haunted house proud.

Cold air swirls about my ankles, turning my toes into popsicle piggies. Going shoeless in the winter is not the best idea I've ever had, but I'm in the house, I should be warm.


Ever sit at a stop light and try to catch a view of people in theirs cars as they zoom by?

Did that today and got a chance to chuckle.

Imagine, seeing minivan after minivan, suv's and trucks zoom on by. Of course you see people on cell phones, picking their noses or chatting to their passenger(s). All part of the driving experience.

What I found unusual was the vision that slammed into my cornea and hit my funny bone.

Car - woman

Van - guy

Truck - guys

salt covered van - woman

ice & salt covered truck - woman

fancy Lincoln - old guy

truck- old guy

van- guy

hot red sedan with a nun driving



Whoa, back up .. Nun?


So out of place.

Car was clean, the color was a nice crisp red and it was being driven by a nun - wearing her casual habit.


That is one sight I do not see a lot of.

Would you find it funny or unusual too?

What's the most unusual thing you've ever seen?

Michele, I've been to Mardis Gras where a guy was wearing crotchless panties on his head while throwing out beads, IN A FAMILY PARADE!! Trust me, I've seen strange! *G*

While attending the Mermaid Parade, seeing naked women wearing pasties and the men covered and their are kids watching this.

A nun on a tractor would be very unusal in my neck of the wood.

Oh, I forgot, in one of the cities near me in last years Christmas parade...there were guys riding motorized toilets. *sigh* Gotta love the South.
