I was rummaging through a bunch of photos today, and ran across this Stranger that Jeff snapped a picture of during Bay to Breakers. The guy isn't dressed in an odd costume, but his actions made him memorable.

Jeff and I were sitting along a wall watching the masses walk along John F. Kennedy Drive. This Stranger, dressed in bright orange, plopped himself down right next to Jeff...clearly a bit intoxicated. His cell phone rang numerous times, and he would turn towards Jeff and say something along the lines of "Ugh, its my *#$!$# girlfriend!" In between phone calls and outbursts, Jeff's new friend would pull a warm bottle of wine out of his backpack and take a long swig. At one point, at if to say "thank you" to Jeff for the one-sided camaraderie they had developed, the Stranger offered Jeff a swig from the bottle. What a gentleman.
