Gangnam Style and Santa Hats

Seen about town today…

  • Another surreal walk in Burlington: On Main & St Paul, there’s a father and son walking toward me. The kid is no more than eight. He’s playing some game, weaving all over the sidewalk. “Careful” I say, very politely, as he nearly bumps into me. Kid stops and says “You’re a poopy-headed penis butt” and starts a Gangnam-style dance. His father thinks this is hilarious. Stunned, I say, “Well, thank you, you’ve made my day.”

  • Later, on Pine St, I see a red Santa Claus hat lying on the sidewalk. Then another. Then another.
