I recently came across a fun Wednesday meme at Muum's Musings where she features weird things she sees at WM. (You know... the big box store? Not sure why it's a secret... but since she whispers about it, we will, too.) I don't know if anyone else participates in her Wednesday meme with her, but they should. Because if you're going to see something weird, chances are, that's where it will be!
I don't have pictures (for obvious reasons) but I once saw a bride and groom shopping in their formal wedding attire. I didn't stare... but I did do a double-take. Why would you go shopping in your wedding gown?
Another time I saw a little kid with a pair of pantyhose on his head, pulled down over his ears like a cap, with the legs knotted together and dangling down his back. You just gotta wonder. Who would let their kid go out like that?
Since we have joined the ranks of RVers we have come to appreciate WalMart's policy (whoops! Iwasn't s'posed to say WalMart!) of allowing campers to spend the night in the parking lot. But I have to say, this one just really caught my eye earlier this spring:
I had the camera in the car, so I made my husband drive closer so I could take a picture. (Sorry about the pickup in the way. This was the best shot I could get surreptitiously.) What I really wanted to do was get out and walk around it and read all the epithets so carefully painted on every available inch of the brightly colored bus. But I didn't.
The ones I could read from where we were had such inspiring messages as "Repent or burn!" or various obscure scriptures taken out of context. I had hoped to be able to enlarge the picture and read more of them after I got home, but I wasn't quite close enough for my camera to pick up that detail.
I have a morbid fascination for weird things like this. I suppose that's what the owner of the bus is going for. Draw attention to the bus to convert people to his brand of religion. (Not quite sure what that is.)
The sad thing, that my husband and I remarked on, is that many non-Christians will probably see the wacky bus and think that all Christians are a bunch of kooks!
