Results of high gas prices

I've been seeing a lot more folks on the train these days. Maybe it is because of the price of gas? Maybe people are just worried about global warming. Hell, I don't know.

I DO know the trains are full. And that means lots of new faces and stories.

Today I saw two women sitting together. They both had on uniforms from the land of McDeals. One looked strange and I couldn't quite place my finger on why. Then it hit me. She had shaved her eyebrows and penciled in some new ones. Only the drawn on version was above where her normal eyebrow would be; it followed the curve of the muscle. She had tiny eyes to begin with and drawing her eyebrows so high gave her A LOT of real estate to deal with. And deal with it she did... with PINK eyeshadow.

So strange.

And her seat mate? She had her hair pulled back into a pony tail that sat right at the top of her head, but toward the back. (Ladies you will know what I mean). And a small tiara perched in front of her ponytail holder.

Princess.

I love riding the train.

I can't help wondering what my grandmother was doing on the train with you.

That's the reason I love taking the train whenever I have to go downtown. Who needs to look out the window when you can just look around?!

The shaved eyebrows with painted replacement brows floating high above where they should be is an awesome look. It gives the wearer a perpetually surprised expression doesn't it? Or it makes them look like Divine from Pink Flamingos

I gotta say, there's some weird people out there! LOL Thanks for the visual image.

Princesses must wear their tiaras at all times, even while they're working at Micki D's. It's in the rule book.
