we rode le métro aérien. soaring above the city. then the parisian tom waits boarded. and began to sing. we jabbed each other with our elbows at the exact same time.
what i don't have on video is the part where tom started singing TO ME. and winking. i'm not kidding or imagining. he was searching for a face to deliver his funny lines to, and i was the big smiley headlight in the back. a natural audience participant.

I just about died when he came over and sang to you! Hee Hee! And the winking! I felt like I was eleven again! I guess this is as good a time as any to tell you that I won’t be flying back home with you. Yep, I have decided to take my sabbatical in Paris and study….the French Foot. Can I borrow your camera?
I HAVE to get one of those discreet little Flip cameras. Must find a way to justify that.
No one noticed you filming. I liked the guy who gave money. So often people look as though the busker is transparent and absolutely silent. Such hard work to do, ignoring another human being.
I liked those decorative white railings at the beginning. Pity about the high rise blocks though. Poor old Paris.
Are you having fun or what? I love it when odd happenstances cro up like that for no good reason–it makes the day much more memorable. Have a happy rest of your trip
I just love random happenstance like that. Therein lies the joy of life.
OMG – you actually found Tom Waits in Paris!!! This adventure just gets better and better. You have certainly carpe’d this diem!
I knew you’d experience some L’AMOUR!

Why i don’t blame him! I’d big your big smiley headlight any day….no matter how far back you are.
