I’ve said here before that the view from my window in the apartment I’m in here in Covington, Kentucky is St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. It is a dead on view. If you were a religious person, you would probably pay extra to get what I have. I’m not religious and I didn’t pay extra. It was just dumb luck.
Sometimes when I look out my window, I’ll see cars and people in the parking lot of St. Mary’s. They’re looking at the cathedral with their cameras taking pictures. I can tell they’re serious about it, because they’re not using the camera on their cell phone. They’ve got the real deal and I understand that. You don’t see a church like that every day.
Also, every once in a while when I’m heading down to the corner of happy and healthy (Walgreens), I’ll cut through St. Mary’s parking lot. On occasion, I’ll run into people who are out there with their cameras. Sometimes I’ll approach them.
“Where would you like me to stand?” I’ll say.
Some people know that I’m joking. Some look at me like I’ve got two heads. One time, an older couple with a camera let me get into the picture. They got my tiny little joke.
What the hell. I mean it’s not like I’m trying to hurt anybody. I’m just having a little fun in St. Mary’s Parking Lot.
