sex in the middle of the road

I sooo wish I'd had my camera with me recently.  I was in the Mission around Valencia and 18th and I saw sex happening right in the middle of the street!  you know how that street has this pseudo parking lane right down the middle?  I have yet to figure that out except that I often see cars parked there.  well, this night two big brown UPS trucks were parked back to back almost touching!  AND packages were moving from one into the other!!

I wrote to Allan over at missionmission 'cause it was too funny.  then I apologized for being so entertained by the benign.

and his response was even funnier:

"Oh don't  get me started on the benign. I saw a Cup 'o Noodles balanced on top of a fire hydrant the other night -- took pictures from three different angles because it tickled me so."

I see he's posted it here and is more on top of his blog at the moment than I.

then I wondered - who put the noodles there? did they do it on purpose? if so, what was it? to give Allan something to photograph and a chuckle and a way through another few minutes of his life? did they watch him? or were they ducking into a cab with their friends and the cabbie said no to noodles...

reminds me of a number of pics I've taken of things my roommates have done over the years. I title them "Life with ___" ... whoever. they know who they are. like N - one morning I was greeted in the kitchen by a glob of peanut butter. balanced on the edge of the silverware drawer. underneath the countertop bullnose tile. I hadn't heard any wild flinging sounds during the nite.

But back to the UPS trucks. I bet the UPS people have a word for that. they must plan those rendezvouz, don't ya think? and how do they talk about it? hey ... uh ... Jack ... we ... uh ... gotta go do that thing with our vans ... at 7 tonite ... in the middle of Valencia ... .

nooo, they Must have a word for it. What Is It? does anyone work at one of these places or have a relative they can ask? now I'm really curious but I've spooked enough people with my doily art - I'm gonna let someone else go this time. let me know what you find out.


That's an awesome illustration! I just passed this to one of my Flickr friends who does work for UPS, so hopefully he'll reply here.

One truck probably called in and had too many packages to finish the route, so reinforcements were called in.

It happens here, in Chicago, often.

Especially during the Xmas onslaught!

hi jcyrai and Joe M500 - thanks for the explanation about why it happens. I actually hadn't yet got to the point of wondering why. too taken up by what it might be called ;) So ... what Do you call "it" when you're talking about it trying to arrange "it"? do you have a word for it? thx!
