My encounter with Gandalf

On a Saturday afternoon I was cruising down the road, windows down with fresh air fluttering against my face. This road runs right up the middle of an urban neighborhood, the houses sit so close to the road you feel like your dodging houses along with traffic.

As I made my way midway though the neighborhood I noticed a male figure standing on the right side of the road. He was tall but a little husky young lad and I could make out something long and skinny in his hand. At first sight, I kind of thought it was a wooden cane, but the fact that he was slamming it into the ground in the direction of every car that past by him, that thought immediately changed. All of the sudden a lightning bolt struck my head and I figured out what it was, he was holding a wooden staff. This was not just any wooden staff, because the look in his eyes said that it was indeed a magical wooden staff. One exactly like the Gandalf the Grey (or white depending on how far you made it in the movies) carried. I could only assume that he was thinking or saying the great spell “You shall not pass!!!”. I can not be for sure, because he was also wearing a blue disposable mask. Yes, he was doing his part to help fight COVID too and yes he was also maintaining proper social distancing. As my car rumbled past him, he slammed the magical staff at me, while I pointed two of my fingers at my eyes and then one in his direction. I mouthed the words “Im watching you” and I continued my way down the road farther and farther away from him. Then all of the sudden something miraculous happened, I realized that yes, I shall pass and then I passed gas. Excuse me.
