People Watching

I love people watching. It can be so fun. So enlightening. So ... interesting.
Do you ever make up stories about people you see? Or is this just a quirk of mine? My brain has to have something to think about while I drive! So each day I go to pick up The Boy from school, I pass all kinds of people. Today I saw the Postman who looks kind of like Hulk Hogan. Long blonde hair, mustache, buff arms. I think he is actually H.H. living here in our town, posing as a mailman to get away from the paparazzi.
And then there's The Runner. This guy is either punching the air while he runs - shirtless most of the time- or rockin on his iTunes. Either way he usually looks like he's high on something. I wonder what he is training for.
Today I saw a new intriguing sight. I passed by a man, running down the street with a Macy's bag in his arm. He was dressed in a white t-shirt, and tan Carhartt's; looked like he just gotten off work; he was running towards the work-truck, the kind with all sorts of tools, and ladders in the back. So definitely a blue-collar worker. Anyway, he's running towards the passenger side with this Macy's package. Is it a gift for his wife? Did he forget a birthday or anniversary? Or is it a surprise for her? Maybe an "I'm sorry." I suppose it could be for his mother, or even himself, but that isn't quite the same scenario. I guess I'll never know ...
Yep, lots of interesting characters in our town.
