I was on the train this morning, and I had a thought. Because the train left the station at 7:39 a.m., I was sleep deprived, so it fell somewhere between “Why do I do this to myself” and “Ronkonkoma is fun to say” in my brain.
What was I thinking? That Refreshments song “Banditos” wouldn’t be written the same way today, in the post-9/11 world. See, you need more than an ID card to get across the border, and chances are the border guard is a scary American agent who actually does speak English and would realize that a passport naming you Jean-Luc Picard of the United Federation of Planets was probably a fake document.
I know I’m not the only one who has random thoughts like this (if I were, Twitter would be much less successful), so tell me, what was the last oddity that popped into your head?
