Exploding Hair and Animal Fashion

"People are Strange"
                              - Jim Morrison

"I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range....I used to care but things have changed"
                               - Bob Dylan

Once again, I have to give Jim and Bob credit; they call it as they saw it and having had dinner at a local franchise restaurant featuring mediocre food hyped up as something special the other night, I witnessed their prophetic lyrics first hand.

The wifey-poo noticed right away but I had to actually turn my head to the booth across the aisle from us.  It's hard to describe the shock.  Imagine a nuclear explosion eminating from a persons head but instead to blowing brain bits twelve miles away, this one only blasts her white hair straight out from her skull into something that looks like this:



Sure, she might have big hair to compensate for well, how do I put it delicately...her obseity.   I wanted to take a picture but it's hard to stand there will a cell phone camera and say, "Excuse me, smile for my blog post on your riduclousness..." with a straight face.  The wifey-poo even tried to take one from the outside window and then run like teenagers but the reflection got in the way.

But that's not where the strangeness stopped either.  An Asian family sat down at the table next to them and the father was wearing this:


Yes, its not every day you see an actual animal hat being worn and not taken off in the restaurant.  And to add icing to the cake, he had a tail hanging down from the chair which was attached to someplace I don't want to know!

Ok, sure, I can go out on the net and find weirder hats...


I can go out on the net and find weirder hairdoos...


But seeing them in person at a franchise is just a bit more disturbing and the only thing I can conclude is that I should have known better than to trust a chain restaurant!

That is all.

I need to reach Dylan's place - I need not to care, because people still bother me too much.

A friend of mine is able to 'pretend text' to get secret photos. I've tried. I still look like I'm trying to take a photo ...

ReformingGeek said...

Oh my. What an entertaining evening!

I'm scared to go to some of these places.

lime said...

sounds like the restaurant was chock full of interesting people of the walmart variety.

but heck, even when we went to gettysburg battle fields we found some weirdness of our own. the guy at the bottom of this post showed up sometime later in one of those walmart people emails i got from a friend.

I am always tempted to try to sneak photos of people like that but I chicken out. I don't want their weirdness getting up in my face if they don't like it, I guess.

People are endlessly fascinating.

Be very careful when talking about big hair, I have a shitload of the stuff. Untameable....Love people watching though. Meg get a Canon G12, quiet, surruptitious and an LED display so you don't have to look through the viewfinder. (Oops sounding a bit stalky now)

Anne said...

I'm glad you're posting again. I can't say anything else at this time.

Mrsupole said...

I had big hair like that when I had my big fro but for some reason as I have gotten older I would only be able to get a small fri and that would be pushing it.

I love people watching. We are a strange species.

God bless.

Guess next time I go to a chain restaurant I better comb my hair first.

Serena said...

Just goes to show that wherever you go, there's a show to see. People are strange...

sybil law - I know, but without people, who would do our landscaping, dry cleaning and oil changes?

incredible woody - Oooh, good idea, I'll have to start working on that skill...

reforminggeek - It's not the places that are bad, it's the people that are drawn to them...oh wait, I went there too...

lime - Exactly...that is what I'm talking about. Maybe Walmart should open a chain of pancake houses for these people to flock to...

megan - I'm going to have to start ignoring their craziness and shoot the pictures anyway. Watch for me in emergency centers throughout the USA should something go wrong...

baino - Big hair is as big hair does...

anne - You've said more than enough...usually you just shake your head!

mrsupole - I had big hair once when I got a perm in the 80s. I don't know what possessed me but with the summer tan I had, I looked like a Jamaican...

serena - And I didn't even have to pay a cover charge....

gab said...
