PARANOIA IN DAIRY QUEEN
I had a weird afternoon. Amy brought Mat by around 2pm to stay for awhile because he wanted to play with the kittens. I took him to DQ about 3 to get a snack for us and for Zach who was coming over after school for a little while. My car horn has not worked for a few months. But today when I started up the car, it started honking and honking all by itself after I got about half a block away. I pulled over and tried beating on it and kicking underneath the dash etc. Finally it stopped, only to start honking crazily again when I started the car and tried to go again. So I went back to the driveway where it stopped and then started again. Finally, it quit for good, and we went to DQ. Instead of going thru the window as I had planned, we went in to order our things. I wasnt going to take a chance on having it start honking while we were in line and unable to move away. There were only the 2-3 workers there and 1 old man who looked like he was taking a working break while on his way somewhere. He was using a calculator, phone and legal pad. Then this younger man (early 30's?) came in and hurried to the restroom, stopping at the other man's booth and asking if he was "Jim Wolf" but he wasn't. After about a minute, the guy came trotting out of the bathroom, grabbed a straw from the supply stand and went back into the restroom. Hmmm... I was taking a dim view of that, when another man came in, looking like a tall, large, straight (I assume.) Truman Capote w/o the hat. He stood right behind and beside me blocking the door, with one hand behind his back, just standing there and looking. Mat had left the video games and was back at our table by then so I got him and said we'd wait in the car for our order. (Yeah, paranoia!) So the clean-cut apparent coke-head and the potential mass murderer (as I passed, it was only his car keys that he held up behind his back) came out together and got into a new pickup, and we went back in just as the waitress was bringing our food out. Ha! Well, that was my little excitement for the day.
