Many moons ago, Ms. TfK worked in Washington, DC. One weekend, we took a little tour through the Lincoln Memorial. Ah, it was a beautiful, romantic spring day. As we were walking down those great marble stairs, with Lincoln watching our backs, a big batch of people were making their way up. We stopped, looked out at the world, and shared a smooch.
Some jackass in the pile of people made a snide comment that I no longer remember. A useful skill in urban environments is the ability to pretend people around you don’t exist. So we moved on. Ms. TfK overheard someone else mention that Pauly Shore was at the core of that crowd. That’s right, Pauly Shore, the frequently unfunny comic mocked our PDA.
Here then, is your random ten.
