#31: Having a Good Time
Accidentally finding yourself in the middle of a parade is a scene straight out of a Clark Griswold movie, and it’s pretty hilarious. I’m sure no one even noticed that they weren’t supposed to be there, because small towns are always extremely welcoming on parade days. All you have to do is smile, laugh, and participate, and you’re good to go!
Aside from that, I feel compelled to mention how fantastic conversion vans were back in the 1980s. Certainly, they appear to be a little unsightly, but the visual is simply too perfect for this entire scenario to be ignored. I’m curious if it was that gorgeous shade of puke green and the wooden panelling that attracted me. Perhaps it was a combination of bright orange and Robin blue? The 1980s were unquestionably a fascinating decade.
