Two days ago I was on the E platform and saw a guy, probably in his 20s, who looked (NO JOKE) like a male version of Grace Jones from the 80s! The haircut was spot on. He even had some kind of white/gray stripe up the front right "edge". His outfit was somewhat MC Hammer-ish too. Classic 80s! It was both interesting/appalling/and funny to me (having been a product/victim of the 80s myself).
This morning I was on my way out of the subway at the 53rd and Madison station when I saw a delivery guy walking down the stairs carrying two plant/flower arrangements. Not one to stare in NYC, I glimpsed something near his mouth and had to look again. Was it lip piercings with some sort of bone shards? Was it a white mustache? Well...no...it was, of course, a tissue shoved into his nose because he had a nose bleed. Gross! Then I spotted his fur hoodie jacket. What?!?! I'm telling you...you can see the most bizarre things in this city if you disregard "city etiquette" and look around.
In the spirit of taking you by surprise, I am awarding everyone currently in the contest 1 bonus point as an early Thanksgiving treat!
