Tell Me Why, Liz?
Thanks so much Liz Foxy, you have reminded me of my absolute outrage at the audacity of those asswipe graffiti artists who can't get their heads out their arses long enough to think before defiling a national monument!
That's right I witnessed a defiled national monument and I'm really pis##$, uh, enraged here! I'm still seething and will probably have to be hospitalized with some sort of nervous condition before this is all over.
So the Knee family went to see The Alamo, remember The Alamo? I rather enjoyed seeing it this time. The first time I saw it my very soul filled with blackened disappointment because The Alamo was just in the middle of down town, right on the street, the town just built up around it. I know. It's supposed to be surrounded by deserty Texas land. Big vast land mass, not down town buildings, drugstores and hotels. I got over that shock, but that is not what this post is about.
We decided to take the headphone tour and when we got up to the outside wall of The Alamo the tape told us where to look to see a cannonball dent. Awesome, you could actually see it. I should have then looked away quickly but I didn't. I looked and looked and saw initials carved into the stone of The Alamo. The Alamo. Someone like that asswipe Liz Foxy had their initials all over the place- I'm pretty certain none of them were Jim Bowie's or any member of the opposing Mexican army.
I really tried to listen to the tape, which was excellent by the way, but I kept seeing initials all over the place carved into the stone. Why would someone do this? Why? You can't just paint over it like in a restroom; Call Kimberly for a really big time.....
I've been pretty much seething about this ever since. Drew said he knew things were bad when I kept saying things about it during the whole tour. Oh look that is the very cannon that blew the guts out of men fighting at The Alamo. And look there are more crappy initials desecrating the fight for independence. Sigh
