Sorry I Missed Yr. Equinox

Last week, about 5 a.m. on a weekday, somebody visited one of the (tiny, in full view of the street) garden areas next to our circular drive. The person lit a fire in front of a wooden bench and behind a low-growing box shrub, and danced around it.

The police and fire department responded. They stood respectfully back and waited for this person to finish their religious observance. This person then retired to another building not too far away. Perhaps then the fire department took care of any lingering aura surrounding the event.

A naked woman is the only way this story makes any sense whatsoever.  Since the equinox was almost a month ago, I have no idea what religion it may have been. I think she should use a hibachi next time.

Ha! Funny story. Maybe her equi-librium is off or something.

Now if that isn't a real "WTF?" moment...I don't know WHAT is.

Almost sounds like something I might see one of "our locals" trying, but that can occur most any day around here...
NO equinox required in Indiana, apparently...lol.

We only seem to ge those "shadow boxing" down the street,a person pushing a shopping cart (from the nearest store), people talking to themselves (and holding some damn good conversations, by the sound of it), and a few frustrated wannabe (c)RAP "artists" who jive and bop down the street, iPod earbuds firmly entrenced in their eustachian canals, basketball bouncing, long silk shorts flapping in the breeze, with more than a few inches of the old "CKs' showing above the "thigh band" (formerly the waist band)...wahtta sight.

We in the Midwest MUST be doing something wrong...LOL!

Have a great Sunday.

Wait, am I missing something here? The police just stood by and let her do this?? I'm confuzzled.

peedee,
Like I said, only the sight of a naked woman explains this in full.

Unless the FD and PD have been given uber-max, over-full training in cultural sensitivity or something. I wasn't there! I bet she was a sight. Of course I don't know if it was a man, but . . .

LOL,
Ann T.

Bob,
I remember all this from RiverTown, and sorry, it's just not the same style! I do think we get some of that style from time to time.

Happy Sunday back atcha,
Ann

Dear Momma Fargo,
I'm sure if you were there we would have received Much better details than what I am able to give!
LOL!

Ann T:
Bizarre, neh, even weird. Perhaps the authorities did not want to try intervening, since authority intervening with the floridly mentally ill often ends badly. The tidying up by the fire department seems about right.

Dear The Observer,
Maybe it's a warm-up for Earth Day celebrations, LOL. Or, practice for arson later. Guess i better get that cat cage ready.

What a nut. Her, I mean, not us.

Ok. I'll cop to it.

It was me.

Sorry.

Ann T. said...

Okay, Linnnn,
If it was you, LOL, or perhaps more likely,
if you understand it,

it wasn't the equinox. What was it?

Sincerely,
Ann T.

I am sure there is a good Internet video of a fire on YouTube or something that is better for the environment--perhaps in those terms your flame-starter would reconsider the act.

Im just glad no one was hurt!

Dear Slamdunk,
I just think it was a crazy-odd place to have a ceremony. I guess it was a ceremony. But next to a wooden park bench, that could have been bad.

Dear Meleah,
yes, me too!
