Glad to meet you.

This photo essay is supposed to be only backsides, but I was unable to resist adding this one front side which was just begging to be published. Quite the inovative costume, eh? One person’s biggest nightmare is another person’s biggest fantasy.

Picnic in San Francisco and Kick Me notes

The notes stuck to this guy’s back remind me of a story a co-worker once told me. Claudia was queued to get on the escalator after getting off BART at Embarcadero Center during rush hour. One woman pushed her way to the front of the queue and got on the escalator in front of Claudia. People were really annoyed and were muttering audibly about this rude, line-jumping woman. The woman just ignored them all and stared straight ahead. As she rose up the escalator, her back became clear to those behind her. Someone had put a sticky note on her back that said “I am an ASS.”

I’m going to start carrying a pad of these notes around with me. This is a great way to diffuse your anger at inconsiderate strangers. This might also be a good way to jump a queue. Just stick this note on your back and jump in front of people. Everyone will let you go because they will be too busy pointing and chuckling.

I realized that I have a lot of pictures of people with pink hair and decided to mix it up a bit. Could this be a San Francisco thing? Or am I just attracted to people wearing pink? I once wore almost nothing but pink for several years. But I once wore only red for 7 years. And currently I have been wearing black for probably 15 years.
