One of my favourite things is to sit at an outdoor Cafe, sip a Latte and people watch!! Failing spare time and a Cafe I still like to observe people!!
Today when I was leaving Uni I followed a young girl who had tiny little feet in black ballet style shoes. Her shape then drastically went triangular resulting in large thighs and a large bottom. That is fine!! What is NOT fine is to wear a mini (micro micro micro mini)skirt where one of your bottom cheeks peaks out as you walk!! What was she thinking, did any of her friends not say anything??? Did she not think that at a University full of stairs, someone would be walking up the stairs behind her.....LIKE me!!!! G-string or no g-string it made not the slightest difference!!!
I then went to a local supermarket to do some grocery shopping. Here I observed a woman who was a couple of years above me at High school. I don't know her name but I remember her face - i do have a good memory for faces!! What probably helped jog my memory, was her hairstyle was STILL the same. Now we were at high school in the 80's and I too confess to peroxiding my hair until it was various shades of orange and yellow, none of them nice shades and using a curling iron to give my hair that real flicked look and then drenching it in hairspray so that it wouldn't move!!! Many of you remember those styles...please tell me you don't wear it like that ANYMORE....unless you are off to an 80's party!!!
Then there was the lovely young boy/man who was working at the checkout. He held up my perfect garlic bulb and asked "Is this a white onion?" - "No that is garlic" I said. He struggled for a while with my three limes on the scales until I said "they are not by the kilo" "Oh Thanks" he said. He then held up my very big bulb of Fennel and said "Is this a white onion?" "no that is Fennel" "Oh they all look the same to me" he said. OK the fennel can be excused...but the garlic...I think not!!
