It's been a boring week. Work has gotten busy, giving me more to do, but it's a whole lot of the tedious, boring stuff. The sort of stuff you'd tell your secretary to do, if you had one. On top of that, we've battled some various physical illnesses this week - nothing serious, but enough to steal time away from designated "work shifts".
All week I have been working on vectoring all of these guys
to prepare for making the Super Nipper comic (Which will likely have a better name). I'm done vectoring new designs for five of those guys so far, just haven't put any online - except Gizmo
, though nobody seems to care for original characters much. Ah well, probably after I get some pages made, and some story out there...
Well, during this dull week my wife and I have been trying to get out a bit more, shopping for things we've needed for a while and such. One day this week - Friday, I think it was - we had an odd occurrence...
While driving done one of the main streets of town, which runs along a bunch of store fronts and the water front - the aptly named "Front Street" - a car coming in the opposite lane suddenly turned in front (There's that word again!) of us right as the light turned green. They had pulled into an abandoned parking lot, but stopped suddenly so that the beat-up green sedan still had the trunk overlapping the road, so that we'd have to swerve around it. Problem was, I couldn't do that thanks to the cars in the lane beside me. I was about to honk at them when this happened:
The two guys in the sedan pop out - sunglasses, cropped hair, dark jackets - and both unzipped their tops to reveal the bright yellow "POLICE" on their t-shirts. Immediately they walked up to two people who appeared to be hurrying down the sidewalk. Then, I noticed another car already in the parking lot - unmarked, but much more obviously a police vehicle from the extra antennae and massive bumper. The two guys who came out of the green car appeared to grab these two other people and escort them to the other car. By this time I had a chance to get around the sedan and drive away, which I had to as not to obstruct traffic.
But man, that was a little weird. Talk about undercover, in a beat-up lookin' car (Looked like a Sunfire or something similar) and cops dressed casually. It lead us to wonder... what the heck did those two people walking down the street DO? I'll let you know, we live in a relatively small town, and this sort of thing rarely happens, so it was an interesting sight.
I'll tell you one thing: from now on, if I'm being followed by a plain, beat-up green sedan, I'll definitely be on my toes!
