This morning on the drive to work we were stopped at the light at Kedzie and Peterson. Just as the light was turning green there was this kid, like this high school kid, in front of the carâ€”he was still crossing, moving slowly through the crosswalk. He wasn’t scared of being hit. He had his hood up, and he looked morosely pleased with himself as he shuffled by and made the cars wait.
I told Chris, “That kid is so like, ‘Dude, I just cheated death.'”
“You know that’s going to be his Twitter today,” Chris said.
It’s a mess out there this morning … more so than yesterday … like … horrible, horrible mess. It took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to get to work today.
I sort of had to be one of those death-defying maniacs crossing the street yesterday and today. Snow ruins a person.
the link to the twitter website is the wrong one…should be twitter rather than twiter 😉
And I don’t think Passive-Aggressive Shuffly Kid was even outside today… I bet with this snow he stayed in and played mumblety-peg.
It’s hard to play that indoors. I’m spackling the wainscotting as we speak.
…if you know what I mean.
That’s just because you’re not good at it.
From the Wikipedia entry on Mumblety Peg:
The current world champion of mumblety peg is Warrent Officer Funk Master Flex, a self-proclaimed “dreamer” who defeated defending champion Oscar Wilde for the title at the premiere of 2006’s “The Wicker Man”. Both men suffered minor lacerations from the contest.
CITATION NEEDED indeed.
Yeah, I figured they were just stabbing themselves because of that Wicker Man remake.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha! This made me laugh so hard.
re pollworkers, they’re not volunteers. they get paid. it’s work for them. hence the unhappiness (perhaps).
If you see this, then the comments are working again! huzzah!
OMG! I keep forgetting to Twitter!
Also…that kid probably just told his band about it – his VEGAN band.
