Random Jots & Musings

For Sept. 23:

  • I saw a woman in Harvard Square wearing a McCain/Palin t-shirt.  I immediately assumed she was wearing it ironically, but after a few moments it occurred to me that she may be for real.
  • There was a massive line at Boloco.  Later I learned it was free burrito day.  What does it say about me that I’d rather pay for a burrito than be in a mob of people?
  • If you’re the gentleman to whom my son gave his slobbery pacifier on the Orange Line this morning, I once again heartily apologize.
  • Speaking of the T, if you find a little baby sneaker, yeah, that’s ours too.
  • The traffic light on Hyde Park Av at Forest Hills Station was stuck on permanent green tonight at rush hour.  We stood on the sidewalk for like 6-7 minutes as caravans of cars and buses buzzed by.  Finally a friendly cop came out and stopped the traffic for the crowd of people gathered by the crosswalk.
  • I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I tell you I saw three black helicopters flying in a row over Forest Hills as I walked up the hill to my house.
  • Today’s the 100th anniversary of Merkle’s Boner (all the 12-year old boys in my readership are rolling on the floor laughing now).
