The Man Around Town

Ok, i'm not gonna tell you the city/town/borough/village where i live. But, regardless...

We had our town fair this week! yippy! Gotta love those unsafe carnival rides! (ok, not really. i'll never go on one; they're not safe.)

anywho, my hubby, erica and i went to the fair for dinner last night. my husband said, "i wonder if we'll see the man around town." and i said: "i hope so! i havent seen him in forever."

there's this guy who just randomly goes around town. He's an elderly man, and whenever we go anywhere, we'll see him just standing or sitting somewhere. i've never actually seen him move. i'm sure he DOES, i've just never seen it.

well, we didnt see him at the fair. i was sad. then we went to get my medicine (see previous post). As we were driving, guess who we saw! The Man Around Town! yeah! he was standing outside of McDonalds.

He is like ALWAYS at McDonald's!! He's related to a friend of mine. Rumor has it that he is actually REALLY rich, but would rather move around and be homeless and bum rides and money off people. He doesn't talk either. He's tried to get Rob's attention before and bum things off him, but Rob just ignored him (for safety reasons). I think he could be dangerous! I wouldn't be surprised if I saw him on America's Most Wanted... really! I've monitored his travels for years. Weird!!!!

You know i've got a man around town too and I was planning on writing about him in a post for next week. I've never actually seen him move either, he just stands at the same corner everymorning leaning on his old bicycle.

I think there's alot of it going around. Probably most towns have one. It's an epidemic! lol
