Taipei Haiku #43

Jam-packed night market

Top place to stop for selfie

You goddamned moron

Selfies are not the devil they are made out to be, but there is a time and place for them and that is not Shilin Night Market on a Saturday night when foot traffic is already moving at a crawl and it’s crowded enough to give my sainted mother a panic attack. Yes, I know you want that perfect shot for your Instagram. So do I, plus a million dollars, and for people to demonstrate a basic awareness of their surroundings, but we don’t always get what we want.

I did score some Adidas runners for roughly $50 Canadian, though, so I’ve got that going for me. I discovered on Friday that I could stick a finger through the soles of my old runners, thus making this an extremely necessary purchase.
