a glimpse of fish


boardwalk musician, Mississippi Avenue.

Atlantic City is a microcosm. it is also surprisingly direct in its approach, considering the proximity of the ocean. i like the sound of walking on the boardwalk.

5 little fish:

There used to be a lady with no arms or legs who played Amazing Grace all day on a keyboard with her tongue. She was killed on a nearby road when her motorized gurney was hit by a car. Her obituary pointed out that she was permitted to adopt a baby when she demonstrated in court that she could change a diaper with her mouth.

You may think I'm making this up. Not so. That's Atlantic City for you.

jp: not while i was there, but he could have.

jason: you know, i've met her?
when she died thousands of people turned up to walk in her funeral posession b/c she'd been up on the boardwalk so long.

unfortunately i was a bit of an idiot in my youth & the only real story (other than passing-by-type ones) is pretty horrible, actually.
ah well.
