Just thought I’d share with you a few strange things that happened yesterday. They’re really nothing but they tickled me and if I’d had my camera I could have shown you, but I didn’t so you’ll just have to use your own imagination and believe me.
Firstly, I’m on my way to work to a place called Killin (Yes, great name for a place). It’s about 25 miles from Crieff but the drive is just pure scenery. Anyway, part of the journey is quite a long, but not too steep, incline. Up ahead a couple of cars were slowing and I noticed a couple of cyclists ahead of them. I just cracked up. They were kitted out in full cycling gear with expensive looking racing bikes. The guy in front was pumping the journey out, notching about 3 mph. I know this because the guy at the back was walking and pushing his bike and keeping up with his mate. But, to top it off he was…smoking a cigarette.
Second, I’m on my way back home from work. A long day getting 3 kitchen floors finished had me leaving work at 8 pm, so it was getting dark. I’m coming home on a different route, basically in the middle of nowhere, and I see a sign saying ” Mud On Road ” and then 3 blokes walking away from it. I was going to stop and ask them to sing “Tiger Feet” but didn’t think they would get the joke.
Third, about 8 miles from home, you drop down into a glen and in semi darkness its quite an overwhelming sight with the mountains ahead of you. Anyway all of a sudden a large rabbit runs out in front of me, caught in my headlights. I brake hard and as I do another 3 or 4 run after it and then I see the very fresh and flattened rabbit in the middle of the road. There’s blood everywhere. All I needed was for Art Garfunkel to be sat at the roadside singing “Bright Eyes” and my whole Watership Down experience would have been complete.
Anyhow, you probably had to be there to fully appreciate them but I thought I’d share them with you because I wanted to post something before my Friday Flash Fiction entry, which I haven’t even started yet.
Leave a comment if you like, if not……I hope your weekend is totally ruined. 🙂
