Random Human #6. No Weirdos. - by dogbomb
Strolling between Sharkeez and Mutts on the semi-deserted boardwalk,
I met this young man as he happily rode his skateboard.
He did the biggest double take ever as he whizzed by.
I knew he’d come back.
Sure enough, 2 minutes later, he raced towards me, a quizzical look
on his face.
"Pardon me," he asked politlely, "but why are you wearing a dog suit?"
"Just for fun," I assured him, and then went on to explain the joy
it brought me to be a big mutt and to make others smile.
He couldn’t believe it. I mean he REALLY couldn’t grasp it.
We talked for several minutes about self expression and the like,
and I finally convinced him that there was no hidden agenda here.
Turns out he was from a very small town in a state that is rather
conservative. He was always the outcast growing up, always apart
from the other kids because his method of self expression differed.
This was his second day living in California.
He told me he loved it here from the moment he got off the plane
and saw the palm trees.
"No one gives me a second look," he said.
I told him that we loved our unique personalities and all the color that
they bring to life. I assured him that he’d fit right in.
He gave me the biggest smile ever.
"I tried to go to a party given by some classmates in my hometown,"
he said. “When they saw me coming they put up a sign that said
'No Weirdos.' I knew it was for me. I don't expect I'll have that
I gave him a hug and wished him luck.
He flew away on his board, whistling and smiling.
I think he’s gunna’ love it here.
After all, compared to a talking dog, he’s mainstream.
