I was waiting at the light in the second right turn lane recently, totally minding my own business.  Then out of the corner of my eye, I see some high school kid dart out, seemingly from traffic, and grab some fruit bowls from beside the traffic light and then hop into the car next to him.  Um…what?

By fruit bowls, I mean those plastic bowls of precut fruit you can get from a grocery store.  I think the fruit bowls in question were pineapple bowls.  Anyway…

I figured this probably was some kind of prank.  You know, the fruit bowl prank that’s so fashionable with high school boys right now.  Yeah.  So, when I looked at the driver of the car the kid jumped into, I was expecting to see another high schooler driving, or at least someone suitably young who would probably be amused by this fruit bowl prank.  Except…I saw an older man.  He looked like he could have been the fruit kid’s dad.  Um…

So then I thought, I probably just saw that wrong.  The kid probably didn’t dart out from the car and grab random fruit bowls that were lying on the side of the street.  He probably had gone into the grocery store that’s in the plaza by the intersection and ran out to meet his dad at the corner.  For some reason.  Instead of just having his dad wait for him in the parking lot or something.

With this theory, I looked by the street light just to verify there wasn’t like some guy handing out fruit bowls or something, and I see that there’s actually one more fruit bowl sitting on the concrete by the light post.  By itself.  With no one around it.  And no sign saying “free fruit bowls!” or anything.  And I noticed that the guy driving the car had driven off in a hurry.  Like, peeled off right in front of oncoming traffic.

This whole thing was…weird.

I have no idea why this happened.  I mean, surely the dad wasn’t so cheap so as to make his son jump out of the car and grab some random fruit on the street, right?  Like, that doesn’t make sense.  Who knows who put that fruit there and whether or not it’s poison fruit or something.

So weird.
