I Never Lie.



Well, no - not really...

Sometimes not when writing, anyway.

When visiting my girlfriend's work today, I was getting out of my car when an Amish couple asked me for directions to McDonalds.

I am not kidding.

I was of course, completely polite and cordial, but even as I was giving them the directions my mind was working in overdrive and totally excited but absolutely dumbstruck...

Amish people in Orange County?

And McDonalds?

I just don't get it.

This is my life.

Ha Ha Ha's

Maybe they were just undercover as Amish.

Seriously, I, for micro-seconds was checking them out to see if they were younger folk made to look like older folk - but, no. And remember, I'm not making fun but, an Amish couple walking down where I live is probably the last thing I'd expect. Give me anything else and I wouldn't blink - but all I had to do was look at the litle old lady...shit, but I AM thirty minutes away from Hollywood so you never know...

MCDONALDS???

I am so confused...

I have another funny story about being mistaken for being famous but will have to write about it tomorrow because it's getting late(r) and I've got to at least watch one episode of Battlestar Galactica before 4 a.m.

I live in Utah, so my first response is: they were probably polygamists. They dress like Amish, too.

And...regarding the question on your previous post: because life blows harder than a hurricane and longer than a jazz solo...Besides, I never write when I CAN, I only want to when I CAN'T. So maybe I'm the one who blows...

I was in the train station in Chicago and I got the notion to follow all these Amish people to see where they were going. They went straight to the McDonald's there, too! They must love it.

They also all seemed very excited on the escalators.

okay three times a charm. No kidding I live in Sacramento, I was at the doctors last week and low and behold as I'm going thru the drive through to get a little breakfast, there were amish walking in. I looked around for a carriage, but they came out of a rented ford focus.

I saw a couple of Amish women in the underwear department of Kmart last week. I mean, I don't hang out in the underwear department of Kmart trying to pick up Amish women, I just happened to be walking by the underwear department on my way to ummmm, sporting goods, yeah, sporting goods, and there they were, looking at underwear.
