Maybe it's time for some macaroni pizza

So, today was the kind of day I actually looked at a stoplight and wondered: Is red the one that means stop? It was the kind of day when I probably would have forgotten how to spell "and" if I could have.

I was driving home the usual way when I passed a usual corner stoplight. Only today, a 17-year-old guy wearing all black stood on the corner. He was wearing an iPod and playing air guitar with the Cici's Pizza "Come and Get it, Bertha!" sign like it was Jimi's Les Paul. There's a certain camaraderie at stoplights--like the "we're in this together", "traffic sucks", "isn't this the longest light ever?" kind and I couldn't help but wonder if the other drivers were about to cough up an intestine as I was...laughing with this crazy Jimi on the corner. Only a few of them seemed to be paying attention.

Their loss. That kid has a real genius for advertising. Going where no pizza suit has gone before... I hope he's there tomorrow. :)
