Strange but True

Friday, October 21, 2005

Can you describe a strange but true moment in your life? Maybe you have many.
I think that I do. So I challenge you. No really. I'd like to hear.
I will eventually get back to the journal thing (can you tell I have a short attention span!)

Here's a strange moment that happened to me just this year.
I gave George W the finger outside the building I work in while screaming F#*K You, BASTARD...

He was visiting my city. Last minute change of cavalcade route.We get the word moments before the cars arrive. I run outside with several colleagues. They wave and smile. I am overcome with hatred, and am pissed off at this sad excuse for a leader of one of the World's most influential countries. I don't think, just act. I see his smug fake smile and I wag my F#*K YOU fingers at his car window. He grins back. My colleagues stare. At me.

You see, I am an Associate Professor. No really, it's true. But perhaps not quite so typical. Whatever typical might mean. My students also scream and I am suddenly their hero. It is now a story to be passed around. It was a shot of adrenaline.

Later, GW tells the media that he is thankful to all the Canadians who came to wave "...with all five fingers." Hee Hee, not me:)
