I'll bet this has NEVER happened to you!

Post by Lori on Thu Aug 12, 2010 5:16 pm

OK, I'm going to try to describe this just how it happened. Try to imagine along as I tell it.

I'm on my way home, and I see the drawbridge going up just past the intersection I'm stopped at. I get through the intersection when it's my turn (the light goes to 4-way blinking red light when the bridge is going up) and come to a stop behind a small pickup. All of a sudden, a pirate (!) pops up from the bed of the pickup, looks around, and sees me (right about at eye level with him!) I don't know if he was more surprised to see me or I was more surprised to see him! We're looking at each other, stunned for a few seconds, and then I smile and he smiles, waggles his eyebrows at me, then turns around to talk to the driver of the pickup through the open window.

This was almost a Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow lookalike. He had a bandanna on his head, and had dark hair worn in dreadlocks with some beads or other stuff worked in. Bare arms and tank top, but I swear, my mind said "Pirate!" He must have been chilling in the back of the pickup, then popped up to see what was going on when the pickup stopped.

I cannot tell you how this made my day! I crack up when I think of the surprised look on his face when we looked into each other's eyes. I must have looked about the same!

Hahaha!!! That's hilarious! I bet he fell asleep back there and had no idea where the truck was when he woke up!

Awesome! It makes me want to dress up as a pirate and do the same thing to someone else. Smile

Rebecca, he was definitely lying on his back, because you could tell he just bent from the waist and sat up.

This is too funny... and Karen, come on, you don't have any draw bridges in your area (nor do I)...

I'm still laughing... Lori, thanks for the vision!
