we were driving to london today, and were passing stonehenge. the uber-hip guitar player who was riding along with us called a friend to tell him he was looking at “that thing from the spinal tap movie”. then, i glanced down out my window (we were in a van, fairly high up), as a rolls royce was passing us. i noticed the driver, a 50-something guy, and another person (female: wife? daughter? other?) sitting directly behind him. then i noticed why: he had a surfboard in the car, which was taking up the other front seat and back seat (front seat reclined flat). something about that moment in time — rocker talking to his friend about spinal tap, stonehenge, rolls royce with a surfboard in it — well, i was momentarily humored and disoriented.
