Bad Pic...Funny Story
This picture sucks, but it shows what I witnessed yesterday morning as I left my friend's apartment (he lives right outside of the city which requires me to take a commuter rail (about a 30 minute ride) to get back to NYC and work. The weather here yesterday was like armegeddon crazy. Black clouds were rolling across the otherwise blue sky, winds were whipping everything and everyone around, and sporadically, bursts of rain fell from the ominous sky.
As I walked out the front door of my friend's building, I saw this green thing rolling down the street. I soon realized it was a Christmas tree. Then I saw the tree roll over cars and make its way to the sidewalk. What you see here, if you look very carefully in the middle of the picture, is the tree (green blob) heading straight toward two people. I yelled, "Look out for the tree!", but it was too late. It clobbered both of them.
It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. It was a small tree, but it got stuck in one guy's hat, and the other lady's hair. They were both swatting it and spinning around like loons. The tree slapped them silly, and blew on. The two people looked around to see if anyone had seen and there I was. Doubled over on my friend's steps, laughing my a$$ off.
Then my friend came outside and said, "Oh! Thank God you're still here! A tree fell in the tracks. No trains are running! Guess you'll have to stay!" Yippie!!!
So I took a personal day from work.
It was a good day!
Back in NYC now so I'll keep my eyes peeled for future posts!
