Interesting Day in the Park

Joshua Lane / / 2 Comments

I met a friend for lunch Sunday afternoon… we ate at Cosi, which was okay, nothing spectacular. Anyways, afterwards we went over to Rittenhouse Park and hung out for a few hours. It was AWESOME outside (sunny, breezey and about 70°), so it was a perfect setting for just lounging around and watching people walk by.

Now, whenever you just sit and watch people walk by, without fail, you always get a few interesting characters. It is the city after all. The first interesting person to walk by was a guy pushing a stroller… but inside the stroller was a vacuum. We figured he was probably just using the stroller as an easy way of transporting the vacuum, but it was still a little weird.

Next up was a lady walking her cat… yes, her CAT. The weirdest thing though is that shortly before this happened, my friend and I were wondering why people only walk dogs, and not cats. Turns out, people DO walk cats… crazy people probably.

Oh, but it doesn’t end there. The next odd character to walk buy was truly bizarre and we couldn’t help but crack up at the sight of him. He was dragging a fan behind him. And not like a tiny little one, a tall/large one like what you would find in people’s bedrooms. He was just dragging it by the power cord… with the stand in his other hand.

Last, but certainly not least was a doorman (at an apartment building nearby) carrying a beach chair and a towel. This wasn’t so odd except for the fact that we’re in the MIDDLE of the CITY. There are no beaches or pools around that I know of. Maybe there’s a pool in the apartment building? Still, when you add that to others we saw, it was definitely an interesting day in the park.

I just wish I had taken pictures…

I don’t think it’s that odd if a person walks a cat. I have two cats and have considered walking them, give them a little fresh air, but they are too afraid of the outdoors. Although, I have had a few cats in the past that I took outside on leashes. They absolutely loved it. I had to keep them on a leash though, because they would run off otherwise. They actually have special leashes for cats too, so I guess it’s more common than most people think.

I thought about walking my cat once. I thought he would like to get some fresh air. I normally don’t let him outside so I thought it was a good idea but as it turns out he was WAY too afraid to go out. By the time I had opened the door the idea had already become history.
