Wierdness at the Duck Pond

Driving onto campus, I pass a little pond that usually has ducks that I believe is quaintly called the "Duck Pond." Often in good weather I see couples "studying" or girls sleeping on beach towels. Today, however, there was an unusual twosome at the Pond of Ducks. One lanky guy was going through a tai chi/karate routine holding two bags that appeared to be pillowcases with square pillows in them. Balance? He was totally in the Karate Kid pose as I drove past, albeit with two square pillowcases. Wierder, perhaps, was the equally lanky guy who was videotaping the square-pillowcase-Karate-Kid-guy doing his little martial arts routine. And, it was an old school style video camera, not some little 1/2 an ounce silver one from Best Buy. I hope that you have an amusing mental image of this; it was worth sharing. :-)
