Today, on the actual Wonderful Weirdos Day: a brief break from the Wonderful Weirdos of Literature series. Rest assured, more books full of Wonderful Weirdos will continue next Friday. Just not today.
Because back in August, I came across this video from 2008, by Matt Harding, via a Wonderful Weirdos Day online article by Jamie Rhein all about travel weirdos. The video I found there touched my heart. I don't even know why. I just know it did. And it's too good not to share. (Parents - you will see the word "Hell" in the title, and at the end credits, but rest assured, it is not used in the video. It's just the name of Matt's website. Totally safe to let your kids watch.) This video is about five minutes long, and something you just have to see. Be patient. Watch the whole thing. In fact, expand it to full screen. Trust me:
