I have no idea what these things are called! They’re too small for cattails, they’re too heady for grass, but they’re all over the place in the summer! And they make a pretty photo. That’s what REALLY matters.

I apologize for posting this so late. I had an early class, which went to noon, except I stayed late and before I knew it I wasn’t home until 4:30 and the dog needed to go out and the garden needed watering and this all took twice as long as usual because IT’S SO RIDICULOUSLY HOT and shows no signs of letting up but anyway HERE IS A NICE COOL PHOTO of Thompson Park.

The place where I took this photo was a fairly high-traffic area of Brookdale Community College, so I had to think twice about contorting myself into the compromising position necessary to take this photo. However, about 15 feet away from me was a woman standing, staring at the ground, and talking loudly and clearly to herself (MAYYYYBE she had a hands-free headset or something… but she wasn’t using her hands! they just hung at her sides). I decided that her situation was more embarrassing than mine, and if SHE was willing to look like such a looney in the middle of campus, then I shouldn’t have any problem with it! So I knelt down to take the picture without another thought.

I was skating through Thompson Park, and I decided, for a change, to take a right turn instead of a left.
In addition to taking me right across the main entrance of Brookdale Community College (which… well… it’s not exactly a low-traffic area), the path took me right by Lincroft Elementary School (whose basketball court is seen above). This normally wouldn’t be a problem, except that some third-graders happened to be having a gym class about 15 feet away from the path. And here I am, being my usual creepy (and sweaty from skating) self–with a camera strapped to my back.
The kids just seemed kind of curious. The gym teacher was looking at me funny, and the kids were corralled back indoors within 5 minutes.
Who builds a fricking bike path right across school grounds?!
