I just came thru the door no more than 15 minutes ago. I’ve been out running errands and just could not wait to get back home and write about this. I have several drafts that I should be working on but this is waaaaay better than any of them.
I saw possibly the most freakish thing that I have ever seen in real life today. As I was going in the post office, three people were coming out. First, I saw the older kinda grubby looking man. Then, a boy of around 13-14 yrs old who looked like a character from Dogpatch was who my eyes landed on second. But, the third…..well, the third ….
A boy almost ran into me coming out the door. And, the way he looked absolutely stunned me for a minute. I seriously needed my camera in a big-ass way. But, unfortunately, I had left my purse with my cellphone w/camera in the car. If I could have gotten a picture, I’ll bet it would have been used all over the internet in countless blogs. Crapola…of all the times to not be carrying my cellphone!
The boy was of undetermined age. He was about a head shorter than me and I am 5’2″. It would be my guess that he could have been as young as 5 (a big, husky five) or as hold as 7 or 8. He had a stocky, strong, raised- on- the- farm (or raised my wolves) build.
. And,he had no shirt or pants on. He was wearing a pair of dingy Fruit of the Looms and cowboy boots.
Yes, you read that correctly.
However, he didn’t give off the impression that he was in distress or anything like that. I know that some of y’all might be thinking…”Well, maybe, he was kidnapped or something.” I have a pretty good sense of trouble and that boy was not in trouble. As a matter of fact, he seemed to be pretty much in control of his companions.
The boy had a pacifier in his mouth! And, when the older of the boys said to him, “Watch out, Bub. You almost ran into that purdy lady.”
What happened next will be forever burned into my memory (as if his clothing were not enough already). Husky, man-panty wearing boy removed the pacifier from his mouth and said, “Fuck you!” to the older boy. His voice was kinda husky and just for a second, I thought that maybe he was a midget (yes, I know that is not PC but “little person” just doesn’t seem adequate here). He then put the pacifier back in his mouth and kept walking out the door.
I just about peed my pants. I wish with all my heart that I had my camera or at least another witness. No one was in the post office, not even the post master since it was lunch time. But, I can guarantee you that I will be carrying my camera every time I go to the post office in the future.
Just a thought….Maybe, they were some of the Lost characters and that’s what the boy wore on the island?????
