What the....?

So, I was walking home from my favorite café a couple of days ago and this is what I saw.

First, a horse and buggy. Being driven (does one drive a horse and buggy?) down a small street a couple of blocks from mine by a very salt of the earth looking 70ish year old man. Not far from where I saw the nun coming out of the bar.

Two minutes later, a beautifully restored 68 VW Bettle, driven by a nun of indeterminate age. Like most nuns.

Two minutes later and now just a block from my house, a big black Hummer. Driven by a young, show-offy Italian (his look screamed Italy and his license plates confirmed it).

He bumped into 2 side view mirrors on his way down the street.

I'm not sure what any of that means, but I'm certain it's significant.

Sounds like a scene out of a 1960s comedy...

oooh, you've piqued my interest! Whatever is the look that "screams Italy"?!

Nicole said...

Anne-Laure - On ira à La Maison cette semaine?

Beth - Sometimes.

Kinga - I'm very envious. On se parle cette semaine?

Le tigre - Exactly that.

Jadie - Here's my sweeping generalization and it's not politically correct at all. Wavy dark hair, very swank clothes, sex in his eyes and a game plan in his walk.

Hi I saw that guy with the horse and cart in Laval on the 26th...I was taking a coffee with my brother and I assumed he was a local character. Have you seen him since I wonder.
