As I walk towards my carpool pickup spot in the evenings in downtown Seattle, sometimes I see some very odd things.
- John Krasinski's younger brother. I can't be positive, but it sure look like him. Same button nose, tussled hair, but much skinnier face. Lucky kid.
- A dude on a Razor. No, not the phone - those scooters from a few years ago. I thought he was crazy, but he sure got down the hill a lot faster than I did.
- The friendliest traffic cop ever. During rush hour, actual Seattle city police direct traffic in and out of parking garages, including stopping the cars for pedestrians. The actual officers rotate frequently. This one fellow shouted 'You folks going to dinner?' at two somewhat lost looking baby boomers on Valentine's day. It made me laugh, but I kept walking.
- The somewhat punny, somewhat cheesy rotating advertising on the marquee for the Lusty Lady. Though it often raises more questions than it asks. What exactly can someone get for a quarter? What do you mean by 'backsides to the grindstone'? But their Valentine's day message made me giggle: 'Come get your ♥ on.'
