Oh my gosh! I had a frightening experience on my way home from school this afternoon. I was at a stop light, and off to my left across the intersection, (I did not have a straight on view and the road slighty curves), I noticed a young couple atop a building lunging forward and then running back. I thought they must be pulling a Halloween prank; surely they weren't going to leap off that one story office building. Then about ten feet further down I noticed a family, parents and a young child doing the same thing. My over-active imagination kicked in and I thought maybe they were all committing suicide and were going to plunge to the ground. I tried to close my eyes because I did not want to witness it, then the light changed and I had to drive through the intersection. I looked up at them as they ran forward. Then I realized it was a darned billboard covering atop the roof that had pulled loose and was being whipped in the wind. It was an advertisement for applesause and the characters were life-sized. Their movements were so realistic when the wind gust would catch one end or the other. I thought the people on the roof were crazy. When I told my hubby about it, he thought I was crazy. Guess you had to be there. I sure breathed a sigh of relief.
