Silly

10 July 2021 – I’m walking home along a shady street, minding my own business, and — just like that! right here on the sidewalk! — I enter another jurisdiction.

It is the jurisdiction of silly walks.

I do not obey. But I do giggle, as that Monty Python skit unrolls yet again in my mind.

I’m practically at the end of the block when I hear more giggling — not my own, somebody else’s, backed by the sound of stomping feet.

I turn, I look, and there’s a teenage girl, getting Silly.

It’s perfect.

    • I was interested to see someone doing a Silly Walk, who was far too young to have seen the shows when originally aired
