Nearly Naked Man Spreads Message of Peace and Love in University Park

My photos fail to convey the full beauty of the story that unfolded before my very eyes at around 9:30 this morning. A guy, maybe in his early twenties, emerged from the alley between Milton and Rankin in his bathrobe and nothin’ else. He picked a crepe myrtle bloom and stood (not so steady) on the egde of Hillcrest holding the flower up, shouting sentiments of  peace to cars zooming by.

When he saw me across the street he yelled, “Hey love, come here” in a british accent and stumbled a bit. Then several University Park cops came screeching up on two wheels to bust up the show.

    So many quotes come to mind:

    “You don’t go out looking for a job dressed like that? On a weekday?”
    “Is this a… what day is this?”

    “So that’s what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.”

    And an un-Lebowski-related, but Ticket-related:
    “Hey Texas…….”

    I said he wasn’t wearing anything else but that’s not true. I failed to mention that he was accessorized with what appeared to be an ascot, perhaps a scarf of some sort.

    bc; The quote that comes to mind is one I just heard today: You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning.

    I’m sorry… did you just say “an ascot?” This guy is officially the best friend I never had.
