Yesterdays 'characters of the day' San Diego

Post by deardancer3 » Mar 15 2013 2:10am

Candidates

#1 the lady at Trader Joes that said the house brand $2.99 Cabernet was the best red wine in the house for under $8. (she was right)


#2 The two 85 year old ladies outside Trader joes that wanted all the possible info on how they could get ebikes like ours, and took detailed notes.

#3. The 95 year old couple that drove a Dodge minivan two miles down a narrow bike path thru twists and turns, banging both sides of the vehicle and lodging the van impossibly at a narrow point in the trail. (after 45 minutes of coaching we got the vehicle turned around so they could go back the way they came) It is the bike path on the south side of the San diego River from Hotel circle to Pacific coast Hiway.
(this only one day after getting a joke in email----- Doctor tears up a senior's Drivers license saying "you wont be needing this anymore"... Senior continues to drive thinking he was special and a license was no longer needed for him)

Seldom have 3 good candidates for character of the day.

#3 Hands down. Old folks going sane together is a beautiful thing.
Each carcinogen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for cancer.

Each mutagen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for reproductive genetic defects in your children.

Each engine start sprays them into a shared atmosphere which includes beings not offered an opportunity to consent accepting these cancer experiences and defective genetics life experiences.

Every post is a free gift to the collective of minds composing the living bleeding edge of LEV development on our spaceship.

Thanks,

The white Zin at $2.49 in Oregon is palatable also.

Whoops! After two glasses of the white Zin and rereading the OP #2 has to be the clear choice. The fact that two ladies of that age care about more than tomorrow speaks well for the human race.

Dogman, its St Patricks day eve, saturday, and Spring break At Pacific Beach (PB).

It will be rocking and rolling tonite till the weeee hours of the morning.

we will not be participating, but watching the early folks, especially the new 21 year olds, makes one wonder how any of us made it to 25 years old.

Oh the energy and vitality of youth. and OH the hang overs.
