I usually pay attention to things with more redeeming social importance than this. Except when I don’t. Which is often. Including now. . .
Yesterday and again today, I’ve been busy getting ready for a week of business travel. Lots of desk time catching up, cleaning up and prepping. And a curious distraction.
There’s a building that I see every time I look up from my laptop. It’s a few blocks north, older, maybe 8-10 stories. I’ve never paid any attention to it before, but yesterday a work crew was busy painting the side of it a bright, vibrant blue. Today they’re back. At least I think it’s them. Maybe it’s a different crew. Whoever it is, today they’re hoisting up the side of the building a giant picture of a moose that appears to be blowing a bubble-gum bubble.
I have no idea why my neighborhood is getting a bubble-blowing moose. Perhaps there’s new research showing that bubble-blowing moose(s) raise the value of nearby properties? Maybe the building owner misses Bullwinkle, just like I do. That seems unlikely, though, since the bubble makes this moose look a little more like Rudolph than Rocky’s BFF.
Whatever the reason for it’s appearance (and I hope that eventually I’ll find out what that is), I’m sure it will be a great enhancement.
Consistent with my rule that I never make this stuff up because I’m just not that good, here’s my new neighbor. Enjoy!
PS – Lots of fun trying to come up with tags for this post. . .:-).
