Now this was neat. This morning after church I went with my friend Jane to Betty's on Virginia Street. And at the table next to us were two guys. That is Two Guys pictured above. It is a Two Guys that was in New Jersey!
Anyway, these two guys were student types, and they had the bohemian look with scarves, hip spectacles, etc.
And they were talking about philosophy!
I heard the names Hegel ...
What about Aristotle Onassis?
There was no talk of him!
Surely being intellectuals they mentioned Leonard Pennario but perhaps that was when I was placing my order because I do not remember that.
The scene made me think of a Schubert song that mentions Kant. It is a beautiful song about looking back on days spent lazing around in the countryside and dreaming and reading.
One nice thing I overheard today: "What do you think of Obama's health plan?" I thought: Well, this is a healthy sign, so to speak. Students who do not take for granted that what Obama does is wonderful.
And this is the best. One of them heaves a deep sigh and he says to the other: "Either you're married and bored, or single and lonely. Those are our only options."
Isn't that tremendous?
You do not know how badly I wanted to take their picture for the Web log.
They were classic!
