This picture makes me laugh every time I see it.
The reason I was here is because my daughter and son-in-law bought tickets to a Steely Dan concert to take place at Red Rocks. My ex had told them they were one of my favorite groups. I liked them, but they were hardly my favorite. I also am not a big fan of concerts. That is not because I don’t like live music. I don’t like how rude and thoughtless other concert-goers are. And, it had been rainy for a few weeks in the afternoon.
We left from Rifle and were headed out of town when we came upon this vehicle. Obviously very much a bus, but doesn’t it say it is not?
The company was fun, the venue was incredible, but it rained torrents at the concert — and just breathing there exposed me to employment-nullifying levels of marijuana. While I wasn’t the most eager participant, I was the one most prepared. I’d gotten myself a big poncho and some leggings and was relatively dry and warm. That was my revenge when the original instigators started blaming me for them being at that concert to begin with. 🙂
Upon looking at this picture later, I also remembered the joke about the blond and the tree. Here it is:
A blonde had just totaled her car in a horrific accident. Miraculously, she managed to pry herself from the wreckage without a scratch and was applying fresh lipstick when the state trooper arrived.
“My God!” the trooper gasped. “Your car looks like an accordion that was stomped on by an elephant. Are you OK ma’am?”
“Yes, officer, I’m just fine” the blonde chirped.
“Well, how in the world did this happen?” the officer asked as he surveyed the wrecked car.
“Officer, it was the strangest thing!” the blonde began. I was driving along this road when from out of nowhere this TREE pops up in front of me. So I swerved to the right, and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ANOTHER tree! I served to the right and there was another tree! I swerved to the left and there was ….”
“Uh, ma’am”, the officer said, cutting her off, “There isn’t a tree on this road for 30 miles. That was your air freshener swinging back and forth.”
We swerved and missed that tree the whole way without incident. And, we did not follow a bus for awhile.
