You know those crazy little characters businesses use for promotions that have a fan blowing up into them and they waggle all over the place? Usually kind of tube shaped with arms and a head. Not sure what they are called or made out of for that matter, maybe something like parachute material or a very thin plastic. Stupid things but they are certainly attention grabbing.
Anyway there was one in front of a store on my route home. I think they put it a bit closer to the road than normal AND put it behind a tree that kind of blocks your preview of it if you’re in the curb lane. They must have had the wind on high or something because that little sucker was flopping and dancing up a storm.
Unfortunately it was also bending in half doing a ‘peek-a-boo’ at unsuspecting drivers. I had a good vantage point because I was in the inside lane, the poor person just in front of me to the right in the curb lane and didn’t see it coming. I think they must of shit their pants. This big happy smiling faced tube-like creature bending over and peeking into their car must have been quite the shock because they ended up swerving a bit. Fortunately there was no accident or anything. Then I would have felt bad for laughing.
