surrealism that turns out to be mundane

today as I was driving down the freeway ds2 did a Fantasy Island and called out "Mum, Mum the plane!" and there was a small plane trailing a banner and I looked up and away from the road as much as was safe and I could have SWORN the banner's first word was what I could only compute as "Condaleezza"

WTF? I thought. This is Perth, there are barely any black people here let alone ones with made up names so it can't be a communication with a Perth resident...

And when I got home the news did in fact reveal that Condy is visiting the Foreign Minister who lives here.

Anyone else care to share a similar moment?

We were travelling down the M6 a couple of years ago, and listening to an audio CD of 'The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents' by Terry Pratchett.

A small car zipped past us in the outside lane. Twas a bearded man wearing a leather hat.

DS1 squealed that he thought it was Terry Pratchett.

DH sped up so we were behind the car, and on the back window was a poster with a list of TP book signing dates.

He was driving so fast that we couldn't safely keep up though, and his car soon disappeared into the distance, leaving the children excited but frustrated at the same time.

I think DS1 would have been happier if we'd nudged TP's car onto the hard shoulder and got him to sign the audio cd case! winkgrin
