On Vox: Bring Your Own Big Wheel

Here's my day yesterday:

Somewhere around two hundred somewhat ridable kiddie toys barreled down Lombard Street in a loosely organized "race". I missed the first run, but got to ride the next two, and then loaned my Big Wheel to a friend for the final run. I'm happy to report that I made it through the day uninjured, although there were some definite close calls.

Next year, I'm definitely wearing a costume. I saw so much funny shit yesterday, I'm still laughing over it. I kept getting entangled with a dude in a gorilla suit, and I kept wishing he'd catch up with the guy in the banana suit and they would battle. The best thing I saw, though, was during the last run when I was watching from the sidelines. I was positioned near the third turn. I turned my head in time to see, sliding sideways around the turn and heading quickly for the wall, Mario and Luigi, locked up side by side. I half expected one of them to start tossing banana peels.

I wish BYOBW would happen ever weekend!

I TOTALLY PISSED MYSELF laughing over this.

It's like this mob of people en masse sliding down the street, a layer of plastic separating them from the cobbles. The crowd and the curbs is all that directed them down the street.

That, and gravity.

"Wheels? Weeeee don' need no steenkin' wheels!"

Dude, my life is complete.
