Weirdness in Boston

Weirdness in Boston

Boston can indeed be a very strange town. Just check out the random observations of a local woman as she wandered about Boston Common the other day during our run of fine weather.

a) Way too many couples lying on the commons making out. Love is a beautiful thing, but since when is it acceptable to lie in a public area, tangle yourself up with your partner, and make out? I don’t care how good looking you are, nobody wants to see that.


f) Two girls in the twenties repeatedly hitting themselves in the abdominal area and chanting in some sort of ritualistic manner. The pounding when on for 20+ minutes and makes me wonder if the girls will ever be able to have children after basically punching themselves in the ovaries over and over. They also did other pilates-like moves and said things such as “shake it off, shake it off” and “I love my body, I love my body.” Then they rubbed their faces and said “I love my beautiful face” over and over again. It seemed to be some private self-esteem building class…or something like that.

g) While waiting to use the bathroom at Burger King, a woman telling us all about her abdominal troubles, using graphic language, claiming she couldn’t hold it, rubbing her huge stomach, and un-buttoning her pants before she even entered the bathroom. Ew.

I suppose you’ll see similar weirdness in any big city (for the first item cf. Rome), but, man, Boston has its share.
