I am not sure what to say about this. There I was, getting into my car in a parking lot and stuck to the pavement was a patch of…
… well, a patch of hair. In some sticky stuff. I don’t want to think all that much about the sticky stuff or how the patch of hair got stuck to it. Did someone lay down and have a patch of hair pulled out? Cleaned their brush out the window of a car and the residue floated down and serendipitously stuck to the parking lot goo? Ok, maybe I do want to think a bit about it.
So, here’s the thing. I was about to get into my car and there was someone waiting, not so patiently, for my spot. She saw me get out of the car with my camera and take a shot of the hair ball in the goo and then drive off. Out of the corner of my eye I caught the quizzical look on her face. Do you think she got out of the car to see what I had taken a picture of or did she just write me off as a nut. C’mon, am I the only one who notices this stuff? Probably not but I suppose most people don’t take pictures, or even think all that much about them. What can I say, it is part of the MFTA credo.
This could actually be one of the more disgusting things I have encounter lately. And I don’t know why, but I was drawn to it. Enough to take a picture at least, it’s not like a touched it or anything. I think Eckhart Tolle would call me extremely present for this one.
Yeh, I just wrote four paragraphs about a hair ball in a parking lot. So what!

Could it be a clump of hair that sacrificed itself for the greater good in trying to suck up oil from the Gulf of Mexico?
i like this thought. did you see that there were hair donations being made en masse for this purpose but those in charge were not prepared to use them. what happens to all that donated hair?
You know something? I’m actually starting to get very fond of your blogs. You’re bonkers. It’s great. I’m adding a link to my blog for you to read, but I don’t think it’s as whacky as yours. Still, you might see a book or a painting on there you enjoy.
Have a nice weekend.
Thanks Orla. You should meet me in real life, I am really nuts. Glad I could be entertaining.
Actually, I have visited your blog. Your work is really beautiful.
Very Donald Trumpish if you ask me…..
OMG that’s it!! I knew that hair looked oddly familiar.
RIP some poor schlep’s comb-over.
