As some of you may know, the missus and I went to our five year college reunion at OWU in Delaware, Ohio then went up to Toledo for a few days and then to Geof and Eileen’s wedding in Valpraiso, Indiana. For the purposes of the blog, the trip was fairly uneventful, though I did get to read some trades and saw Slammin Salmon for the first time. Most importantly, though, this happened:
There was a street festival in Delaware the weekend we were there, I assume to both celebrate the undergrads no longer being around to refer to them as “townies” and also to get some of that OWU alumni money. I saw this guy doing balloon animals and whatnot earlier in the day and thought he looked a little creepy, but only in the sense that all clowns wearing JNCOs are creepy. Later that night, he showed up at the packed bar still wearing his makeup, though it looked more like Heath Ledger’s Joker by then and stunk like a homeless guy. He made my buddy Will this crazy hat and then, I shit you not, left on a unicycle after almost being forcibly removed from the bar by a very angry bartender who was sick of stepping on balloons.
