We live in a decent sized town, so it's not unusual to see some questionable characters when out and about. Lady jogging with her pet fox makes us say, "that's weird." Guy riding his bike down the road sporting a tin foil hat, "that's weird too." Usually we just chuckle and go on our merry way. A few weeks ago I was on my way to the farmers market when I see this guy walking down the road with a HUGE ball painted like the world. "Ahahaha! Look, Jason! He's got the whole world, in his hands" I proceeded to sing to him. (Anyone remember that one from Sunday School?) So, our car convo goes something like this:
Jason- Hey! I just saw him on the news. You should stop and have your picture with him. You can put it on your blog.
Me- I don't know what that guy is about. He could be a creeper. I can't promote creepers on my blog!
Thanks to modern technology, I was able to Google the fellow pretty quick. Turns out this guy is known as The World Guy. So far, he has walked with his big globe ball, and his dog Nice, through 39 states, totaling over 6,000 miles in an effort to raise awareness for diabetes. Since diabetes runs in my husband's family, this is definitely a cause I can support! So, we stopped to say hi, get a quick picture, and give him a little money for his travels.
If you'd like, stop over and check out World Guy's blog. He's got some neat photos of his travels posted. You can find him over at www.worldguy.org.
What are some weird sites you have seen in your town lately?
