A walk on the mild side

When I was visiting my mom in Saskatoon last week we went for a walk by the river and a group of sorta hippie folks were walking towards us. I heard them singing a bit to each other. As we passed this one guy was being all cool singing to a girl, “hey babe, take a walk on the wild side.” And as he was saying wild side he turned and made direct eye contact with me like he was directing some random square on the street to open their mind and I could barely contain my laughter. Cause like… that song is about people like me and not some hemp wearing dude in Saskatchewan.
