I was out at my neighborhood park on Saturday. It's a cute little park, newly renovated about two years ago. My daughter ran around and played on everything. She likes the big equipment more than that baby stuff and I saw why.
On the tube by the train engine I saw this written in sharpie.
I instantly had a ton of reactions to this.
First I went into snark mode: "Thanks Captain Obvious, nothing says romance more then a red train. Guess what? "People" probably did more than "make out" in there.
Second I went into mom mode: "Gross my kid plays in there. There's not enough purel in the world to disinfect that tube."
Then I went into writer mode: "Damn that would make a great YA short story. Two people hook up in a park and want to be immortalized some how."
Then I went into teacher mode: "Isn't that what all teenagers want, to me immortal, to be remembered some how? What a better way to be rebellious youth then to taint a place of childhood innocence's then to vandalize it."
Then I went into practical mode: "So people made out AND had a sharpie? Really?"
Then I went into word nerd mode: "Interesting that the word choice was "people" and not implying genre. Who were these people? I assumed girl and guy but maybe it was guy guy or girl girl."
Then I went into skeptic mode: "Maybe NO ONE made out in here. Maybe it's just a prank."
Really I want to know the REALLY want to read what you think happen. I want to READ your stories about the "people who made out in there." I'm thinking a mini blog fest, maybe? Let me know what you think.
But what's your favorite piece of graffiti? Or maybe that could be the blogfest. Let me know in the comments.
BTW today is Hubby's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUBBY.
