She’s Not in the Mood to Be Stared At

She said nothing about being photographed. (Scroll down for rear view.)

Her sign is disingenuous: surely she’s dressing like that to be noticed. How could she expect not to be? And if she’s as anti-establishment as her outfit suggests, shouldn’t she be growing her own ingredients and making her own pesto quinoa rather than supporting a massive global company like Aldi, owner of Trader Joe’s?

That sounds good, pesto quinoa. I’ve got to get Secondshade on that. Enjoy the Specimen of the Week. She might be Specimen of the Year; she’s certainly one of the best I’ve ever found. What do you think?
