Music, Travel
Driving to work today, northbound, I was stopped at a light. I noticed the Political Hot Dog Man on the corner with a sign reading "Free" giving away something green. I shook my head and he didn't even try to bother me. I briefly turned off my radio so I could be sure that the loud music was "Black Velvet Band". I briefly wondered if it was being performed by Blackthorn. I noticed a vehicle stuck at the same light, southbound. I briefly tried to figure out if it was some form of police vehicle or an armored car. I mused how it is said that "On St. Patrick's day, everyone is Irish" and I laughed at my clothing. Blue and black. Not a spot of green (or orange) visible (or invisible).

After the light changed, I moved north and the mystery vehicle moved south, and I had to laugh at the name/brand on the side: GARDA.

Heh. I wondered where you were going with that. Nice punchline; I've seen them around too.

My brother-in-law works for that armored car company.

Hmmm... has he thought to invest in a magnetic label for the side of the truck with a copy (or a simulation or parody) of the shield ... just for today.

Some people would say that "black and blue" is appropriate for the Irish.

Ouch.

That's OK, I bet most people didn't wear purple yesterday, either.

Well... I wore an off-pinkish color that looks different in different lights. But not to honor the "good Saint" -- just cuz it was the next one to come up in the closet rotation.
