A day for odd bods

Yesterday, I ended up spending lots of time in my car, driving from one appointment to another, school runs, errands, etc...

In the past, bumper stickers have sparked ideas in my buzzing head and yesterday, several oddities made me wonder...

1) White car parked at traffic lights. Hot guy takes off his shirt. Extremely buff. Checks himself out in rear vision mirror. Then puts the exact same shirt back on.

2) Lady in car in front of me, down a major 3 lane road in bumper to bumper peak hour traffic, plucking her eyebrows. Car weaving all over the place. And continued to pluck for a good few kilometres.

3) Guy in yellow anorak (in 30 degrees plus) walking a large dog, with a lead attached to large dog's collar, attached to a small dog leading the way. Like a procession. Little, medium, biggest.

First one made me smile, second made me shake my head, third made me want to muck up the order.

The oddities of human nature that tickle a writer's imagination...

(Almost forgot, if you have a moment, pop into IHeartPresents today where I'm blogging about what makes a great heroine.)

Did the first make eye contact? If so, there's your answer!

The first one makes me wish I knew what he was thinking. . . the second makes me think well, at least it's not just US drivers that are distracted like that. . . and the third, I can picture it, but yet I can't; sure wish I could have seen that! :)

Do you think the guy had a bee in his shirt? Maybe he's like the dangerous animals at the zoo, look but don't get too close...

Whatever the reason, I'm not complaining :)
