Would you imagine my bewilderment [predicament]!? I was taking a leisurely stroll around the block from my office this morning to “get a piece of fresh air,” as they say. The cars zooming by, the birds chirping, the soft breeze on my prickly face, the glowing rotunda of the post-modern San Jose City Hall that lost its ’90s luster, rising before me on the horizon. As I approached the back entrance of City Hall, I looked up and BEHOLD!:
You can imagine my confusion. I was staring at the backside of the statue with the dome of the rotunda of the City Hall before me like in procession.
I slowly pivoted around to witness the great, mighty, and colorful cow.
“Wow,” I thought, “the Canaanite god, Baal-Peor! Here, in San Jose!?”
How funny it is to stumble on the backside of the statue of a cow to let you know, “BEHOLD, you are about to enter the sacred of the City Hall FROM THE BEHIND.”
