so, the next morning, jill, ray & i headed out to schenley park for a truly bizarre event that ray and i had heard of — mascot skate. pittsburgh is a town of strange, cute mascots, and they all convened to go ice skating. it was a truly bizarre experience.
below is my favorite mascot of all, the litterbug! you may recognize hir from all those posters at bus stops sternly warning you not to litter, because the litter bug is coming after you…or something. in real life, the litter bug is super cute!!
it was actually really crowded and zany, which is unusual for pittsburgh, which usually has a strange abandoned quality no matter what. but everywhere we went that day was really crowded, which prompted me to declare, “we have the most popular ideas in pittsburgh!”
i feel like a giant nerd. surprise! i am a giant nerd.
