Conversation Between my Roomate and a Six-Year-Old Girl In Front of Our Apartment Building

posted 12 Apr 2003, 7PM | 12 Comments

Girl: Are you a policeman?

Josh, climbing off motorcycle: No.

Girl: So, what are you then?

Josh, wearing large shiny helmet, removing velcro riding gloves: Uh, I'm a regular person.

But regular seems so, well... *plain*.

well, if policemen make up the whole of unregular society we're doing pretty good at being regular.

"congratulations, you're a unique individual.... just like everyone else."

Time to state it: I too am a regular person.

It's funny...Josh would've had to have stepped out of a Crown Victoria in Massachusetts, if the girl were to mistake him for a cop in his home state.

Maybe the 6-yr-old watches CHiPs reruns with her dad. Or maybe CHiPs pulled her dad over one time.

Regardless, his answer should have been "Poncharello, ma'am."

back again after a long break...and glad to see that the world is still turning and that Calinatives live in an on reality. Josh not only would have been forced to step out of a Crown Vic., he would also have to be about three times his size. All I can give you to imagine the size I am think of is Wareham cops....not the kind that got dispatched to Geagans house either. The CHP is kind of scary though. Very willing to see if you are drunk or not...

Unrelated thing, but check out the Iraqi information ministers view of the RedSox v. Yankees on's 2nd page. Sorry I just read it and felt the need to share.

a regular person who hiccups!

come to think of it... josh is anything but a regular person. maybe a regular old man with a gas/hiccup condition would be a little more accurate.

he is a man of many contradictions. young and old, healthy but sick, sober but drunk.

you remember the picture Joshua took, that he put in the '94 PNHS LitMag, of Mark Sandman playing his bass? You couldn't see Mark's face or the body of the bass...just its neck and head. Anyway, I had an extremely vivid dream last night where it was Joshua in that picture, and he was playing Mark Sandman's bass, and he was playing Do Not Go Quietly Unto Your Grave, and he was kicking ass. Thought it warranted mentioning.
