Square Trees

So I never saw square trees until I visited Palm Beach, Florida. 


What’s the saying:

“It’s hip to be square!”

I definitely had to take a doubletake when I saw these. 


Wherever we were going, I was gonna stop and get a photo of this. 


These trees are almost as if they are from another planet. 


What planet would have square trees? 


Hope you enjoy it.

People Nutrition

This is an risque t-shirt this lady is wearing.


It’s a big nutrition label. 


And she’s wrapped in it!


I’m not sure if this is a gag or fashion statement or even a sexual thing.


Is she advertising that she’s like the food?


What was really funny though is by her butt…it says 


“Moschino chocolate tastes good.”


Maybe that should be a black box warning!


Uh, this is way too much information for me. 😉

Sexuality Sells Sometimes

Sexuality Sells.jpeg

So this was the entranceway to a store in Florida. 


As you can see, the center mannequin is set up sitting in not a very modest way for a lady. 


And worse, there is a little boy mannequin situated right next to her. 


It was funny to see people stop to look at this fake sexual scene.


But no amount of sexuality could sell the junk that the store was pushing. 


So strutting your stuff or showing a little skin–or in this case hard plastic–may get the customer’s attention or even in the store.


However, it certainly doesn’t close the deal, although something else here would be better off shut or as my mother-in-law says, “close your yap!” 😉

Wardrobe Malfunction Or Stylish

Wardrobe Malfunction.jpeg

So I got to personally witness a spectacular wardrobe malfunction today. 


It’s not often in Washington, D.C. that we get to see someone in a bright blue suit jacket with flowers. 


Obviously, this is a pretty conservative dress town. 


Some might call it rather style boring or even nerdy. 


However, this brave guy went out on a limb and stood out like a sore DC thumbnail. 


Actually, I believe it’s nice to add some color, flair, and style and light up the room and the faces. 


Too much gloominess and depression here at times. 


I was so excited when someone actually called me “Happy Tie!”


Then everyone took a turn showing off their colorful socks to each other.


It takes so little to turn a room of people joyful and laughing.


Honestly, we need more of this, and why not be a contributor to people’s happiness and smiling?

Superman Leadership

Superman Socks.jpeg

This guy’s socks were very cool.

If you can say that socks make the man then perhaps this is it.

Superman that is!

No special shirt, underwear, or cape required–the socks communicate it all. 

For the man of steel or one in the making (if worn at workout time).  

Then again, I was trying to imagine someone actually having the guts or nuttiness to wear these to the office.  

If they would, it probably be with the following in mind: 

I can do anything helpful to get the job done–

1) Rolling out cutting-edge systems and business process improvements faster than a speeding bullet

2) Creating positive change more powerful than a locomotive

3) Able to leap with integrity over organizational obstacles, red tape, and naysayers in a single bound

It’s a change consultant. It’s a corner office bureaucrat.  It’s a “superleader!”

Up up and away…it can be done (even without the socks). 😉

Her Hair Was A Hoot

Orange Hair.jpeg

No offense intended, but not going to miss this lady in a crowd.

Orange-hot pink hair, a zebra shirt, big black-rimmed glasses, and a wild bag with dozens of pins all over it. 

It was also funny that the sign over her head says, “Orange” to match this lady’s hair. 

My childhood friends would probably call this a “Hair Don’t” like a hairdo, only don’t do it!

Sometimes, you have to wonder what people are thinking.

It’s nice to get attention, if it’s attention worth getting. 😉
