The pic is typical photoshopped phonecam quality, so lemme 'splain what you're seeing. Picture, if you will, a grandma, somewhere in the 75-to-1,000 range, wig of shimmering white nylon, cardigan sweater to ward off the chill of the 80-plus-degree outside, feeding her change into one of those bills-for-coin machines. Okay, you've got the pic, right? Right, okay, now add in the 3" stack heels, the opaque white stockings, and the leopard print miniskirt.
A grandma looking for some action at the supermarket, I'm thinking. Getting some folding money and heading for the produce section, thinking up clever lines about squeezing melons and what the cucumbers remind her of.
Seriously, a very jarring sight at 9 a.m. I pretty much sprinted for the laundromat after that one.
