Generally I don’t use really use facebook, but this morning I saw some strange text on a girl’s rucksack and I thought I’d post a picture and make a comment about it.
Do you have any idea how awkward it is to take a photo of a rucksack (obviously from the back) without making it look like you’re a crazy guy taking a picture of someone’s arse? Naturally a second girl behind me noticed my struggle and confronted me about it.
2nd girl: (something unintelligible in Dutch)
It probably meant: Why are you taking pictures of that girl?
Me: Sorry, do you speak English?
2nd girl: Yes. Why are you taking pictures of that girl?
Me: It’s not the girl, it’s the rucksack. The text is odd so I wanted to take a picture of it for my time travel blog.
2nd girl: You know about time travel?
Me: Not really, but I read about it.
2nd girl: Do you have a time machine then?
Me: Of course not!
2nd girl: You’re crazy.
And then she left.
By this time, rucksack girl was no longer in sight so I didn’t have a chance to try for a better shot of the text. (You could argue that as commuters the chances are high that I’ll see her again tomorrow – but I’m happy to close this episode now!).
Anyway, here’s the best I have:
Is it the words or our (reading) time line that’s all muddled up?
Now admittedly my comment isn’t mind blowing or out of this world, but after all the effort I took to put it into context, I don’t think I should have been called crazy!
