Go Forrest, Go

Earlier today, as I was running past a bus stop in my short running shorts and bright orange running shirt, a kid yelled, Go Forrest, Go Forrest Go! Go Forrest, Go Forrest Go!

I ignore him at first, but he kept going.

Go Forrest, Go Forrest Go! Go Forrest, Go Forrest Go!

So I looked over at him and smiled.

I smiled not because he called me Forrest. I’ve heard that before. And I didn’t smile because he misquoted one of the most iconic movie lines of all time.

I smiled because he combined Forrest Gump’s “Run Forrest, Run!” and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze’s (featuring Vanilla Ice) “Go Ninja, Go Ninja Go! Go Ninja, Go Ninja Go!”
