We were at the Mc Donald’s for an early breakfast, an egg McMuffin and hot coffee is a fun way to start the day on an unusually cold Arizona morning before we ran a bunch of errands. As we were waiting, I was people watching, which is my usual MO and there is always a great smorgasbord of people to pick from to check out and wonder about, so much fodder…
OK, so this groovy guy was swaggin’ a long sleeve white under-armor t-shirt, with a tight white nike beenie over his so with-it bald head, looking to see who was noticing him. His shirt said “Play better golf”. Oh, really. So as he’s waiting for his breakfast, he’s practicing his golf swing in the McDonald’s Lobby. How hysterical…how pretentious! You had to see it… I don’t know if he had an app. on his phone as he was chipping his shot with the phone in his hand…priceless.
As I told my husband about this, he told me about a “friend” of his who used to be in the middle of a conversation and just start taking up his golf stance and shoot for a long shot. How weird! Does anyone but me find this “different” or aberrant behavior?
I like yoga, but I don’t just pull a “downward dog” posture in the middle of Office Max. Can you imagine?
What other absurdities have you seen like this in your everyday life? Please share. I need a laugh.
Oh, I know another one. I knew this woman who would be in the middle of a conversation with you, and would just start doing neck and arm stretches. Big exaggerated movements that garnered attention, and needed space. It was very different. I understand neck and back pain, but if it’s that bad, perhaps it’s time to go home.
I know there are many apps., but really, is there an app. for your golf swing? What other totally unnecessary apps. are there that are as crazy?
Is it just me or is the world that far gone that Rome’s burning, and people are worried about their golf swing, a recreation, so much that they probably pay $9.99 a month for an app. to practice with their phone…come on people get a grip!
