So, we are going to tell you about what happened yesterday. It was getting late in the afternoon, not quite time to leave, but not really enough time to start anything new, either. Sometimes that happens as early as Thursday, ("well, the weekend is coming, in 37 hours, I can't really answer my emails.") so I walked around a little bit.
|It isn't this building, but it is similar,|
since it is "top secret" we will pretend.
Anyway, we are not far from the convention center (which was designed and built to look like it was constructed at different times, from different materials, which makes for an odd appearance, but that is not important, sorry). Anyway, working that close to the convention center can provide some odd sights depending on who is using the facility.
So last night when I was cruising around avoiding responsibility, I looked out the window and saw a guy dressed up as Thor, the god of thunder. Kind of, he had a long red cape, and a Thor like hammer (Mjolnir, is the proper name) on his belt. At first I thought it wasn't Thor, because he was very thin, and wore jean shorts and a tank top.
But, I went to tell my co-worker, Bil, about it, and he said he saw Deadpool riding a skateboard when he went to lunch. He thought it was not really Deadpool because he only had the mask, not the whole uniform, if that is the proper term for the clothing of a cartoon hero, or villain, I'm not sure in which category Deadpool falls.
But, this did not strike either of us as all that strange, being so close to the convention center, with the weekend coming.
But, as I was driving home the Department of Transportation had shut down the freeway going into downtown. Which is odd, right before rush hour, and the weekend. And then I thought, what if that was Deadpool (who may be a bad guy) and Thor (who is a good guy) and they had one of the epic, building destroying, street closing, mess making, commute ruining battles, portrayed so well on the magic box. What then. It will take me forever to get to work Monday, dammit. I am afraid to turn on the TV.
Let me know if you have heard anything.
