I have to admit that I pay more attention to the people around me than I once did. I'm not sure but I think it has something to do with me writing now.
I get the idea for some of my characters from the people I see when I'm out and about. The lady in the cowboy hat or the guy sitting in the car next to me at a stop light. You find inspiration in all kinds of places. Most have been interesting, some have struck me as sad, some just plain damn funny. Today however what I found made me want to cry out, NO.
In the booth next to us were two young men and I use that term with reserve. They were total morons. Irritating, idiotic, brainless morons. Now these two prime examples of what a girl shouldn't want in a guy were talking about motorcycle classes. They would pay a fee for one day of class and come out of there ready to jump on the back of a two wheel vehicle and take off down the road.
These two dumb asses didn't sound like they had the sense to come in out of the rain and now they are going to go out and buy and ride what I can only assume is their choice of suicide. I also worry that this may possibly be the method of taking out some poor unsuspecting innocent individual in the process who someone in these moron's family will say should have been watching for these dimwits.
Believe me my final judgement on these two characters wasn't bases on the motorcycle discussion alone. Every time one of these goofballs opened their mouths something else came out to boldly distinguish them as babbling fools. My sympathy to all conscientious motorcycle riders for the mark these two are going to put on your group as a whole.
I'm telling you these guys are the poster children for Dumb & Dumber. No insult to the movie meant by this but if you want to do a sequel just follow these two around and you'll have it.
I seriously thought about stopping and telling them both to call their mothers and tell them what kind of hair brain idea they had but was afraid of going to jail. They would have probably responded with something ever more idiotic and I would have had to slap them both up side the head.
So to all you poor unsuspecting drivers out there be on the lookout for these two. They will be the ones out there on the streets and highways weaving in and out of traffic or piled up in a heap along side the road. Take pity on them and hope they don't take an innocent with them.
