Now that's a pretty big Pinocchio.

As I was coming to work on May 7th, I saw something unusual.
 Some guys were putting together a giant Pinochio.
 I stopped and talked with them a while, and took some pictures.  These guys were the fabricators, out of Oregon, I believe.  As soon as they email me the truth, I will correct my post!
It was a bit surreal, seeing the wooden boy who longs to be real, fully realized in bronze, and laid out like a prizefighter.
 I would have liked to talk more, but I had a class to teach.

I was very happy to come back the next week and see that P. was on his feet.
 I thought to myself, I need to get someone to take my picture as I'm being trod upon by this demonically animated marionette.
 I would have looked awesome under those stylish boots.
 I was also fortunate to meet the artist who designed this work.
 Being a total numbskull, I didn't write down his name.  I'll have to add it once the fabricators email me.
 This was how it looked as I went in to class.
 By the time I came out, the landscaping guys had started to unload.  No chance for my dream photo shoot.
 By the following week, the landscaping was complete, and the artists had returned to their country of origin.
 And we are left with this reminder...
 That once...
 The gods strode among us...
In Centum City.

A Brief Introduction

Roblog is my writing lab. It is my goal to not let seven days pass without a new post. I welcome your criticism, as I cannot improve on my own.

Here is a link to my cung post, which remains the only word which I have ever invented, and which has not, as far as I know, caught on. Yet.
