MARY, MARY QUITE CONTRARY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

 

"Mary, Mary Quite Contrary" made an appearance today at 7th and Montana, but there was no need to ask her how her garden grows:  She was wearing it on her head.  Indeed, An Anonymous Fashion Victim arrived on the scene at Our Favorite Starbucks, wearing enough Plastic Vegetation on her head to scare off Carmen Miranda.  "Perhaps she's auditioning for a part in some big, new production," I wondered, as -- with a simple flourish of her Bright Red Parasol -- she quietly disappeared into the rain.  One thing's for sure:  Dressed like that she'd be a shoe-in for a part in the Rose Bowl Parade ...!

You know, Carmen Miranda's father co-wrote the Miranda Act. They originally were going to call it the "Chicita Banana Act", but thought it just wouldn't sound right reading a potential felon his Chicita Banana rights!

Cheers,
