In my village, you know spring is here when the inflatable bouncy castles begin to appear again. They fill the structures with air in a few spots along the main road, and children (for a small fee) can have some time bouncing around and, well, being children.
Well, this weekend I was taking a stroll along the main road, and there, in front of the post office, I recognized one of these structures. It was a replica of the Titanic. Sinking.
I stopped for a moment, cocked my head, chuckled, and continued walking. I’m not sure who designs these structures, or how they came up with the idea to recreate this iconic disaster as a kids’ bouncy castle, but I half expected to see Leonardo DiCaprio at the mast yelling “I’m the king of the world!”
The next day, I had my camera with me, and I had to snap a picture. Enjoyably bizarre.
