Any Americans out there remember that show “Kids Say the Darndest Things”? As I’ve gotten older, the implication that only kids can say hilarious things seems stranger and stranger to me. You should hear my uncle playing any board game or read any of my father’s text messages regarding my cat.
When I’m traveling alone, I pay more attention to the conversations happening around me than I would if I had a companion. Some people become more social when they travel alone, but I become the opposite — I can entertain myself really easily, and I prefer observation to participation.
When I was at the Grand Canyon two fridays ago, I overheard the other people wandering around saying the most bizarre or spot-on things. Naturally, instead of engaging myself in the conversation, I immediately pulled out my phone and wrote down several of the quotes before I could forget them. I’m using them as the captions for these pictures I took.
Real life is genuinely stranger than fiction, sometimes.
