As you all know this has been... an interesting week. The jury is still out as to whether or not it was good or bad interesting...
I did house stuff during the day and eventually ended up heading to the mega-ginormous-chinese-buffet (which always seems play an asian influenced instrumental version of House of the Rising Sun while we're there) with Dave. After the mega-ginormous meal, we headed to Wal-Mart (because we're just cool like that yo, and Wal-Mart is like the place to be on a Saturday night.. yo).
Anyways, we're driving along discussing writing stuff, and as we turn onto Mesa, I look to my right and see an old, white, 50s pick-up. As I'm talking, I look a little closer and...
"Well, you see the fatal flaw is that...THERE'S A MIME!"
That's right. A mime is driving the pick-up. Not only that, but the guy has just gone through the Burger King drive-through (?...!). Dave's response is to go "Really? Where!" and nearly slam on the brakes (in the middle of traffic) in order to let the pick-up catch up to us so that he can see the mime.
Unfortunately traffic doesn't cooperate and we end up speeding up a bit and laughing about this like a couple of hyenas on nitrous. I thought that was the end, but no. As luck would have it, the mime catches up to us at which point Dave's reaction is "Dude, it is a mime!" which of course produces a renewed fit of maniacal giggling from both of us. Since the light we were at was a bit long, we start talking about how I have to start carrying around my camera and I start thinking that if I had it, I'd probably be leaning out of the truck taking a few pictures of the mime in his pick-em-up truck. Of course I can't just make the statement, I have to actually lean out of the truck and do an air-camera of how I would be taking pictures.
Just as I do that a lady drives by and does a double take (and keeps staring at us throughout the remainder of the light). Apparently my air-camera motion was so convincing that she thought I took a picture of her as she drove by. Dave suggests that she's wondering what's going on... "Well, she should look over there, it's a mime!".
Once traffic starts moving I look over and sure enough, the mime is sitting in his truck, with a big funny ass straw hat (with red sparkles), drinking out of a big Burger King cup and just cruising along without a care in the world.
Surreal just doesn't do justice to how odd the whole situation was. I mean, come on it's a Mime!
