a different viewpoint
I went with Omar and a couple of his friends to have a beer and some lunch this afternoon. As I was sitting in the covered patio of the restaurant, I watched several people pass by. It suddenly occured to me as I was watching, that each of them reminded me of bird or animal. I watched a lady walk by that seemed like a pidgeon...head held back and high, breast thrust forward, stepping carefully and slowly. Another woman passed and I thought she looked exactly like a heavy setting hen...red hair, a smallish top with well-endowed tail feathers. I laughed a little, then looked up at the blaring television, that was showing the very last few moments of an episode of "Charmed"...one of the witch sisters was singing, very made up, hair long and wavy, heavy makeup on the eyes and lips, clingy evening gown...she looked exactly like Jessica Rabbit from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", and by coincidence, she was singing the Jessica's opening song! After we ate, I excused myself to go home. The whole afternoon seemed like it was out of a cartoon strip. Not fair to Yogi Bear and Yosemite Sam, with whom we were having lunch.
