"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.
