So last night a friend and I were at a local hospital to do some side work for a second job we both have. We were standing outside the emergency room waiting for our boss so she could let us in to the part of the building we needed to be in and what do we see? An old man (late 60's at LEAST, most likely mid-to-late 70's) walking out of the emergency room in thigh high shiny vinyl go-go boots. I'm talking the kind of boots worn either by a stripper or a pale girl with yarn in her hair. All other appearances were normal. The plaid flannel jacket, the nearly non-existent hair, the 'life has defeated me' look on his face but with huge shiny stripper boots. It was so funny I nearly fell over and my friend (who shall remain nameless) was urging me to run after him and take a picture but there was NO way I was crazy enough to follow an old man in stripper boots. And to add to the surreal nature of the experience, he was leading an older woman back to her car (I'm assuming it was his mother or sister or something). And the lady had GROSS skin, like her entire epidermis had been replaced by one giant carcinoma. I nearly hurled. Normally I wouldn't mention the old lady but the idea of vomiting because of her and laughing because of the guy, and standing outside the hospital like a vomit sprinkler makes me laugh. Ah, sometimes life is just FUN.
