Street Cred, Where For Art Thou?

12 03 2010

Strange thing happened…  As we were coming out of Bed Bath and Beyond this evening a car full of young teens, or 20 somethings drove past, windows down, car revving, stereo blasting, and all the passengers hanging out of the windows heckling people on the street.

Much like Toorak Road on a Saturday Night back in Melbourne really.  Except for one thing.  On Toorak Road, there’s some credibility.  Here, not so much.

So, getting back to it.  There I am, on the footpath walking back to my car when my senses are assaulted by this car full of “hoons” and all I could do was smile and shake my head…

Now, I’m not quite sure what they were yelling from the window as they drove past, nor do I recall what they looked like, nor the car they were driving.  What I do recall is that I found their music selection “ironic” for want of a better word.

It’s hard to take a potential hoodlum serious, when Miley Cyrus’s ‘Party in the USA’ is blasting from the stereo.

Poor children, I’m sure there’s a warm bed, story, and a glass of milk waiting for them. 😉

In other news.  My new bed arrived today, and is now taking pride of place in my newly repainted bedroom with shining hardwood floors.  It’s a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress, and it’s like lying on soft playdough.  You can feel yourself sinking into it slowly, and when you get up you can see your body shape.  Amazingly supportive and comfy.

Bedtime can’t come quick enough tonight.  🙂
