Day 34: Is That A Turtle On Your Head Or Are You Just Glad To See Me?

 

I was walking to work today.

Just minding my own business.

A gorgeous day in Beijing.

The sky was blue.

The sun was shining.

People were smiling.

 

I was stopped dead in my tracks.

Stunned at first, I broke into a huge smile.

And watched as she walked by me.

With a turtle on her head.

Read that sentence again.

Just in case you don’t want to,

I’ll repeat it.

With a turtle on her head.

 

Nothing to see here. Move along.  Just a turtle on her head.

Nothing to see here. Move along. Just a turtle on her head.

 

I stared, ran after her, and asked her for a photograph.

 

There were loads of people walking by and they all started smiling and laughing.

 

The strange thing is that they were smiling and laughing,

 

at me,

 

Because I was taking a picture.
