Two Funny Things

Yesterday on the way to the airport, I saw quite possibly the most incongruous thing I’ve ever seen in my life: It was a Cadillac with Hawaii plates. Now I’ve never been to Hawaii, but I’m reasonably certain that Caddies aren’t the most common car to be found on those islands. But the driver of the car—he made me laugh—because he was wearing a HUGE cowboy hat. Not one of those “I’m dressin’ up lahk a Cowboy and wearin’ this here hat”. No sir, it was a genuine, bent-just-so-at-the-crown, I-wear-this-every-day kind of Cowboy hat. Of course as I passed him, I HAD to look. At that point I started laughing out loud to myself, because the man driving the Hawaiian Cadillac in his big ol’ Cowboy Hat was an Indian. Aah, only in America—the great melting pot. Too funny.

Today, on my way back to the office from a Starbucks run, I passed by a hair salon. They had a HUGE sign in front that proclaimed: “Mullets Removed For Free!” I almost spit my latte I laughed so hard.

Have a good weekend, my friends.
