Who’s Gonna Pay For That Wall

Border Fence

So presidential candidate, Donald Trump wants to build a wall on the southern U.S. border with Mexico to control immigration for homeland security and the economy. 


But more than that, he thinks Mexico should pay for it.


Today, on CNN was a response from Mexico’s ex president, who said, we’re “not gonna pay for that f****** wall!”


I was walking around laughing to myself for about 10 minutes–the zany and (un)predictable action-reaction in politics and diplomacy. 


You can’t make this stuff up. 


Just an aside, but wouldn’t you say Ex-President [of] Mexico instead of the Ex-Mexico President –Oops, who was working the captions at CNN today. 


What will be surreal and hilarious after this is if the “f****** wall” would really happen, and if Mexico would seriously end up paying for it. 😉

Losing their Heads

Mannequin_head

This photo was just wild from the metro bus today.

Some lady–assume she’s a cosmetologist in training–working on this mannequin head on the Metro.

She’s got her luggage bag spread out open on the floor of the bus, a drink bottle laying on the seat next to her, and a mannequin head between her knees.

And the lady is slowly, carefully applying eye liner as if she’s sitting in some luxury day spa or something.

While I admire her work and the practice, the image was just a little surreal on the bus to work.

Letting imagination go wild…if she held up the head by the pony tail with blood and guts dripping out and brandishing a large butcher knife, then I can see this scene going to a whole new level of scary-crazy.

Uh, that’s a different movie… 😉

But that’s what city life, commuting, and to a great extent work is all about–the next personality you come across and all that they are cracked up to be.
