If you saw anyone acting strangely in downtown Ypsi last night, I think I might know why


The arrow pointed down an alleyway off of Washington Street. Another sign, about 20 yards down the alley, pointed behind a garage, where I assume someone was waiting with various bottles of potion. I was tempted, but I did not give in to my curiosity. I value my life too much.

    And I don’t know that it’s related, but that is one of Stewart Beal’s cars parked by the sign.

    I was curious.

    For some reason, likely my geekdom, that brought Zelda to my mind: http://zeldawiki.org/Curiosity_Shop

    It had a quaint flavor that reminded me of old fountain drinks. Shortly after consumption I was filled with a sense of wander and a need to explore unknown things.
    I woke up working with a road crew comprised of paroles and a stern corrections officer.

    This is why no one should spend time on Washington Street.

    The people of Ypsilanti aren’t bad. It’s just the potion.

    If you really valued your life, you’d live in Ann Arbor.

    As someone of Facebook said when looking at this photo, “Not sure if whimsical or terrifying…”

    What effect did the potion have on you, Stewart?

    Do they have any polyjuice? I’ve got a big day ahead of me.

    Anytime I see something like this in Ypsi nowadays I just figure it’s Lampshade asking for money again.

    I whistled at you and everything
    You shoulda stopped by

    I was late for a meeting, Mr. Trashpedal. I did smile and rub my ass, though, when you whistled and said, “Now, that’s what I like.”

    Anonymous, I think you’re thinking of Felix Felicia, also called “Liquid Luck.” Polyjuice just allows you to look like someone else for a while.
