The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

We arrived at the market early today. My son and I simply woke up early so we decided to get things set up early and then relax a while before the people showed up. Around 6:30 we had everything unloaded and then we heard someone about a block away singing at the top of his lungs. It was actually more like a cross between yelling and singing. I can't write here exactly what the man was singing but I will tell you that it went something like this: Noooooo moreeeeeeeee N's. followed by I hate N's. We are all adults here and I am sure you all know what he was saying.

Imagine my surprise when this man reached the market and I found out it was an older black man. Now I live in the south and hearing the N word isn't that rare but hearing it coming from a black man that isn't a rapper is a little strange. But wait that isn't the strangest part. Get this now. This man was dressed in a hot pink dress. I am not lying here. After he reached the market he got right in the market directors face and sang his song to her. She politely told him that she was having a conversation so he left but continued singing his song.

On his way through the market he called several other black men N's and once almost started a fight. Ok now I want you all to bring in your kids and have them see this for themselves. This is why you should never do crack.

Sorry about the quality but I was trying to get the photo quickly without getting caught. And you know the worst part. Get this girls. He had on black flip flops. Ewwwwwww. No fashion sense at all. Where are the fashion police when you need them? And speaking of police. I guess after the commotion, someone called the police because one stayed in the market all day.

We had a lousy day though. Sales were way down due to the economy I guess. I am sure all will be well by next week.

Have a great Sunday,

Well - that certainly is strange. Almost makes you think he lost a bet or something. There was a transvestite around here that had a very sorry fashion sense or had to shop at goodwill or both. I had always thought good taste came automatically with the territory but I am sadly wrong.

Word probably spread about the pink dressed man....that would scare a crowd away anyday!

That photo is priceless. What a nuisance! Even in Miami, we rarely see sites like this.

You sure do come across some interesting people Greg!
When my son was a lot younger we went to a bookstore in Albuquerque. A guy came in dressed in a blouse and a very short,flowered pink mini skirt. When he bent over you could see his butt! I took my son to another area of the store.

That is very strange. Did he hang out at the market all day? Makes for an interesting day and sorry your sales were down.

I haven't had very much time for blogging as of late. You would believe what a pickle I can get myself in at times. Anyway, I'll blog about that as soon as I can land a little free time.

You post was amazing! I have never seen anything like it. I really don't get out very often around big crowds but WOW!

I'll pray business picks up for you folks next week.


Thanks for all your prayers and support with my season of Cancer.

What a world... what a world!

I agree...EEwwwwww! Flip flops? LOL!! What a sight. Miami is known as the Melting Pot Capital and I've seen some weird stuff here, but have never had the nerve to snap a picture. Good for you! You are so brave!!! Please call the fashion police in the future. LOL!!!
