The Art of Almost Getting Arrested
… at a Parade!

Once upon a time (last week)

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

I went to a parade in a faraway land! (just down the street actually)

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

There were bands,

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

Babies

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

Burglars

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

And more … And somewhere in there I managed to score.

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

For a $10 bill, I shot up like a hurdler  … I jumped off the sidewalk and …

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

… Hugged the Hamburglar!

He was squishy and scared.  Just look at his face.  He started to run … like it was a race.


The parade wound down,

ANY CHARA CTER HERE

With coppers and crowds,


ANY CHARA CTER HERE

Next year they’ll be back, but  I won’t be allowed.

And they all lived happily ever after.

The end.

(Yeah.  There’s very little I won’t do for a buck.  Actually, there’s very little I won’t do for a ham sandwich.)
Oh … and inferring I almost got arrested may have been a bit of an exaggeration.  I embarrassed my mother though.  That ought to count for something.

    I’d hug you for a twenty. And your mother for free.

    I always look forward to the parade, it seems to get bigger and bigger every year. Great pics Karen! P.S. Estelle is such a cutie!

    That was GREAT! I was sitting here getting grumpy and that made me smile. Happy $10!

    the question is, did they ticket you? or just kick you out of all future parades?

    True story. When I was 14 I found $100 floating in the ocean. In Australia our bills are plastic which is awesome because they don’t get ruined in the wash or…ocean.

    I took my friends out for lunch with it & had change left over (ahhh the good old days)

    It is still the greatest day of my life. I am not even sure my boyfriend proposing 2 days ago tops that day.

      Gasp! Congratulations. On both the $100 and the proposal! (even though technically speaking you’re not supposed to congratulate the bride … only the groom). Good job on cuttin’ one from the herd.
