Losing their Heads

Mannequin_head

This photo was just wild from the metro bus today.

Some lady–assume she’s a cosmetologist in training–working on this mannequin head on the Metro.

She’s got her luggage bag spread out open on the floor of the bus, a drink bottle laying on the seat next to her, and a mannequin head between her knees.

And the lady is slowly, carefully applying eye liner as if she’s sitting in some luxury day spa or something.

While I admire her work and the practice, the image was just a little surreal on the bus to work.

Letting imagination go wild…if she held up the head by the pony tail with blood and guts dripping out and brandishing a large butcher knife, then I can see this scene going to a whole new level of scary-crazy.

Uh, that’s a different movie… 😉

But that’s what city life, commuting, and to a great extent work is all about–the next personality you come across and all that they are cracked up to be.
