Metro Transit Diaries: When the going gets weird...

I know this doesn't seem possible, but at the bus stop waiting for the 6E after class I saw a woman that had the exact body type of a Who from Who-ville (from the animated version, anyway). I don't care how much you enoy Dr. Seuss, nothing will prepare you for the moment when you see those proportions on an actual human being.

She had massive feet. I'm talkin' bigger than some of the guys I know. Just ridiculously large. Something like size 14 or something bigger. Simply enormous. She was tall too. She towered over me by about a foot, and I'm five and a half feet tall.

If I wasn't so shocked, I would've been annoyed with her. Because she kept walking about a foot in front of me, and bending to the left at the waist to peer out into the street so that she could reaffirm that the bus still wasn't here. It's weird to see someone with that body type bend at the hips. It isn't bending so much, as just leaning. I'm surprised she didn't tip over.

But really, I've seen lots of tall women. I've never seen anyone shaped like a Who from Who-ville. Until today. She even had a pointy hat on with a little pom-poms on the top! First time for everything, I suppose.

I almost couldn't handle it.


Personality wise she wasn't very Who-ish, though. She sighed in irritation about once every 6.3 seconds, and even though she only had to wait about 3 minutes for the bus to come, she cut to the front of the line and actually pushed a man out of the way. Kind of a bitch, actually.

when I was at a music festival, there were at least 100 midgets there. Not little people - honest to God midgets.
Not entirely related, but still bizarre.

Good God... how do you react in that situation? 0_o
