I had the most awesome drive into work today! My only regret is that I didn't have camera with me. First of all, a convertible BMW zoomed by me on the toll road, top down. Who was driving it? A full-on clown, multicolored wig, makeup, and all! That kind of got my heart pumping about the kind of day it was going to be, let me tell you. I'm sad to say that this clown was smoking, but we'll just forget about that little detail. It was a CLOWN! At 8:30 in the morning!
I got off the freeway at my exit, and I was stopped behind a truck with license plates that said: SWNGST2. I love,love, love clever license plates, so I figured out it was "Swing Set 2." The frame around the plate read "We Install Fun." I passed the truck as we headed up Alicia Parkway, and it turned out to be a company that installs swing sets, jungle gyms, trampolines - in other words, FUN.
Some of my best memories of childhood revolve around our old swing set. We would do circus tricks from the bars, and we'd try to swing as high as we could, and then jump off. It felt like you were flying for a brief second. Amazing. We had a trampoline, too, and we learned to do all kinds of flips and fancy jumps. Such good times.
It made me wish, as I turned into the work parking lot, that I was on my way to install some fun for someone.
