While paddling my kayak on the Christiana River that goes under I-95, I found graffiti painted on the bridge supports that appear to have been done by the University of Delaware’s woman’s rowing team who often practice there. One graffito (singular of graffiti) simply said, “Wild Thing—1994.”
That was fourteen years ago. I wonder where Wild Thing is now? Is she still wild? Does anybody care? A 20-year-old wild thing is exciting, but a 34-year-old wild thing is pathetic. Has all that wildness turned her hot body to fat? Wildness doesn’t usually last long and often ends badly.
For a long time a railroad overpass in our area had a graffito painted on it that must be pornographic, but I could never understand it. It read, “Lap Dog Rides Sidesaddle.”
I still don’t get it. If you do, e-mail me the explanation in a discrete, brown wrapper.
