Allah Sulu-South Park

The Allah Sulu Parade!

I had to go to the post office this morning, to send out one of the DVDs I've sold online. Apparently, today was the day of the big Laurel Independence Day Parade, because they were already closing off sidestreets from the road I took down to Main Street. All along the road on both sides, people were already taking the choicest locations (under trees, primarily) to set up their chairs and wait to watch the parade. But since it hadn't started yet, they were all watching me.

So, I slowed down, plastered a big fake smile on my face, waved to my crowds, an asked "Hey, how ya doin'?" My own parade. My mother, the goddess of communion wine, would have been so proud.

"Step away from the vodka" my ass...
