I just saw the Pope

Some coworkers and I were eating lunch on the roof just now and we heard a motorcade go sirening by. Typically, that's the president or vice president, which is exciting but sort of old-hat at this point. But this time, we realized, it might be the Popemobile. It was. We watched from above as it zipped through Dupont Circle below... Oh, Popemobile!

This is exactly the kind of thing I want to end up rolling around in. When its all said and done I am going to be a spectacle in my own right looking like this. I want a driver along with food handler that would keep me properly fed

Did you have a rifle up there on the roof....? And who is this Amelia person and why doesn't she know what the Popemobile is?! He has that glass thing so that people up on ROOFS don't SHOOT HIM!

Brian, I've been surprised how many people don't seem to know what the Popemobile is. When we were talking about seeing it here at work, a bunch of people were like, "What?" AshKat (whose party you attended with me) said her excuse was that she was Jewish. But that's no excuse: I'm Mormon, from a state that has a total of like five Catholics, and I know what the Popemobile is!

Ya, I had no idea what that was either... He just flies it around with him? Or does he keep one in important cities like DC for special visits?

Crazy jebus folk...
