So, I'm at the truck stop...  Reply with quote  

and a mini-van pulls up next to me, and out pour 7 midgets. Seriously. The tallest one is maybe 4 feet tall. I didn't know they travelled in packs. But then I got to thinking, maybe they're Santa's elves on a spy mission for the big man, to update his Naughty/Nice manifesto. So I held the door for them and didn't stare...alot.

Seriously. If they'd have told me they represented the Lollypop Guild, I would totally fuckin' lost it.

I think they prefer to be called a "herd." Yeah, I think that's right... it's a herd of midgets, and a pack of dwarfs.

Where they all male midgets or all female midgets? Hard to tell?
Were they heading in the direction of Chicago, and did you overhear the words 'Jerry Springer'?

Or a reasonable explanation is they were a family on the road for the holidays.

I totally had George Michael in mind when you said "truck stop."

Of course, I believe you could do better than GM....don't know about the truck stop, though. You are from the South.

I was so expecting a one-time-at-band-camp story... Wink

I once met a midget at a titty bar, he was a DJ-
& no, neither of us were working there Razz -
I'm always running across drummers & DJs, the friend with him was a drummer, go figure... Wink
