I noticed billboards. I usually try to ignore them because, well, sometimes they slime me. Anyway, there was a series of billboards that were just big red billboards with phrases on them. They cracked me up. I didn't know until the next phase that these were Cartoon Network anticipation billboards…teasers. I don't really like most of today's cartoons but the billboards are silly. My favorites seem to be:
"I pooted." Imagine a giant red billboard with the simple yellow words…
The other I was captured by was "Clowns hate tangelos." I don't know the source of either of these but now there are pictures to accompany the words so I know there IS a source and it isn't just random. Odd how a phrase like "clowns hate tangelos" can stick with a gal for several days. Clowns hate tangelos. Clowns hate tangelos.
Nearby to these odd little boards are others that aren't nearly so tolerable. There is a bar called Night Trips which has some seductive crud on it…and a gym called Hard Bodies. (*sigh)
I welcome the comedy because, otherwise, the junk on the highway I travel to work is very tiresome. I use to have a more scenic commute and had several options I could choose from to get to work but now I live on the edge of our metropolis and drive an ugly highway that is about to go under MAJOR construction.
Is it okay to pray for entertaining billboards?
That is how I come to have random stuff in my mind…strange songs…sometimes prayer…sometimes fighting for my life.
Back when I first started making this commute (just after my marriage to Mark in 2004) I witnessed a horrible fatality. It was a firey crash and it was horrible. HORRIBLE. There is also the amazing amount of SUVs and large trucks that indicate that the gas prices here aren't really freaking anyone out. Get my little Ford Focus out there with a few hundred giant vehicles and my yearning for deliverance from I-40 is really reaching the "crying out" stage.
Still, it is Oklahoma and we don't have anyplace here with the traffic of the Dallas Metro, L.A., or most other major cities so what am I complaining about?
