I love Cambridge [Nov. 8th, 2005|11:11 pm]
한국 사람이 아니다

This evening, on Mass Ave. just in front of the little graveyard near Cambridge Common, I saw the most surrealistically amusing scene.

A small (I'd guess 5'6"), roly-poly little guy with a granny shopping cart had just said something to a very tall, thin man (well over 6'). I didn't hear what he said. But I heard what the tall man said in response:

"What did you say to me? How DARE you speak to me like that, you LITTLE MAN!?" he roared. He was standing a foot or less away from the guy; in fact, he was bending over him as he yelled.

I have no idea what that was all about. I only heard one thing more: the little guy said, "What? I asked you a question, as a citizen..." and then I walked out of earshot.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone talk like that outside of a Twilight Zone or Perry Mason episode.

I love living here. Every day I see something I've never seen before. As miserable as I was when I lived in Atlanta, I am exponentially as happy here.

That is sublime.

I see Ronnie Corbett as the little man and Stephen Fry or John Cleese as the tall man.

John Cleese is a lot like what this guy looked like, too.

Actually, with a moustache, the little guy did look like little Ronnie.

Too cool. I'm smiling just thinking about it.
