I spend at minimum 2 hours a day on the metro system here in lovely DC, I live in Maryland, work in Virginia and my route takes me directly through the city. Also apparently directly through the apex of weirdos.
The mullet last week was nothing. I stayed late at work tonight, met my roomie in Dupont for dinner. Great Indian food and lots of conversation. So we are on our way home, continuing our now semi-serious conversation from dinner, and I spy out of the corner of my eye this character.... Picture a somewhat pudgy mousy haired girl, around 20 years old, with bright pink lipstick, and a disconcerting outfit the oddities of which you can't quite put your finger on other than her shoes say "meow" on them. Then it hit me, she has a furry creature in her lap, a grey and white furry animal of some sort. Wait, no, its a Muppet, Jim Hensen style. Some kind of dog. And, just to take it to the next level she is acting as though this is a real animal. The Muppet is busy licking himself.
OK meanwhile I am still maintaining my conversation, listening intently. And the full magnitude of Muppet girl hasn't hit me. In fact, I think it's only hitting me now. Do you think she escaped from somewhere? Muppet Girl Interrupted?
