An entire line of cars was being held up - beginning with a bus and a concrete truck - by an old, old, old, man, on a bicycle. This was funnier than the dog with the pig leg. You had to be there.
I have not gone on a single outing in the car here without seeing a man urinating in public. Most of them were drunk, I hope.
And yet I don't hope. You see a lot of drunk people here. Mostly men. And they are everywhere. It's not necessarily because Poland has more alcoholics than other countries, I don't know and don't care to find out the stats on that. It's just because there are more people out and about I suppose. You just see more of life here. And that life includes men who are drunk my 11am on a Thursday morning. It's sad. Sigh.
And speaking of drunks and other things you wish your children didn't see on a daily basis... billboards here are scan.da.lous. Scandalous. And you know whats even funnier. Twice now I have seen entire ads on billboards either be officially censored with signs over the offensive body parts, or simply scratched out by the locals. Awesome. Awesome, I say! Good for them for standing up for they believe in. Both ads were ones that I was personally hoping the children wouldn't see, but alas they are exactly the ones they giggle and point at. Double sigh.
Now that I'm all "sighed" out I will replace the sighs with an "awww."
Someone turned two yesterday...
An apple pie, with a flame-kissed crust. Because we have a lot of apples.
And there could only be one thing better than that to make me go "awww" and that would be a new niece or nephew... WHICH I HAVE!!!
|Spoiler alert, Teresa, but I had to put a photo of *something* I made.|
*GGGGRRRRBBBBLLLLEEEESSSSS... Martin is MAKING me add that *of course* it was a a pig leg form a butcher's shop and the owner of the shop had given it to the dog as a treat. It was not as if, and I quote, "the dog had gone out and slaughtered some pig and dragged it's carcass onto the main square and everyone was ok with that." It is a regular country after all.
