Overheard at the station

A young woman walked past wearing orange trousers with the word PINK appliquéd across the seat in huge, blue letters.

A watching woman elbowed her companion and said
That's unusual.
He replied
And it wobbles.

HA! I think those may have been Victoria's Secret britches.

My 18 year old had a pair of those when they came out a couple tow or three years ago, and a young, nice wobble to boot.

(If I wore those, I'd be arrested for middle-aged-crappy-wobble-ewww-lady-what-were-ya-thinking!-.no- it's-no-longe-the-70's) Ya gotta know when you're time has come and gone, right?!

Kitty and Bernita, I know Natalie (Whipple) likes orange, so she was in good company!

sylvia, sadly I didn't have my camera out!

Scarlet, and are you one of them?

Robin, her secret is out!

I know I wobble a lot more than I used to and not in such interesting ways.

Anoraks Anonymous do such a great job rehabilitating recovering train spotters.

Only last week at Birmingham New St, I watched some guy complaining to his carer that the 07.15 from Cambridge was leering slightly to the left.

The half dozen girls cavorting about platform 6 in their catsuits completely passed him by.

fairyhedgehog said...

Kevin, :)

Petty, it drew the eye, at any rate!

Heather, it's amazing what you can hear when you have new hearing aids!

Talli, I'll know it's you next time!

Richard, it was certainly special.

maybe, glad you liked it.

Whirl, that comment deserves to be a pot in its own right!

Ornage trousers! With pink letters? Why?

fairyhedgehog said...

DJK, the letters were blue, but they spelled PINK. It made my brain hurt!

The.Effing.Librarian said...

wherethefuck do you people live? PINK here in America is like Nike or Adidas at the World Cup. that's why I wonder what the "that's unusual" comment meant.
but the "wobble," I will try to erase from my mind. (ack, no such luck.)

fairyhedgehog said...

TEL, I live in the UK. As far as I know, PINK is a colour! I'm sorry that you need mind bleach for the "wobble".
