BALI HAI'S AND LOWS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

It was a taste of South Pacific at 7th and Montana yesterday as an Anonymous Islander took fashion trends to a new Bali Low. "Yikes, get a load of that," said one onlooker as the Islander, a woman in her early fifties, walked by wearing an Extra Large Mu-Mu festooned with Lilies. Her hair was arranged in a bun so tightly wound it sat on her head like a cobra ready to strike. An Oversized Blossom dangled precariously from her scalp. "I'm on it," I said, grabbing my camera phone and following her up 7th Street. And then, just as I was ready to take her picture, she turned to face me. I tried to cover my tracks, pretending as usual to send someone a text message, but the jig was up. She shot me a look like an Angry Volcano God, then continued along her merry way.

Marty, isn't this the second time you've gotten busted? You need to work on your Ninja skills, buddy! And that lady really does look like I remember the Bali Hai lady looking! I think that song is going to be running through my head the rest of the evening, and unfortunately, the only words I remember are "Bali Hai." If that is running through my head when I lay down to sleep, I blame you! ;)
