Adventures on the CTA

I was heading to work this morning (early might I add) when this guy stepped onto the bus. I was mortified to see his gym shoes, pulled up white socks, white shorts - - yes shorts in the freaking winter, white tee with a basketball rim, and his Al Sharpton inspired perm (to make things worse his hair was highlighted gold) ... and the kicker is that he wasn't wearing a jacket! It's January in Chicago and besides being under a blizzard watch, there is snow on the ground and a chill in the air.

Thanks to being back in action with my blackberry I was able to snap a few pics. My favorite is when after getting off of the bus we passed him standing outside and he looked like some tragic victim of photoshop. Everyone else is bundled up except for him.

Now, I don't know this guy's story or why in the world he was prancing around town like this but to make this story a little heartwarming it does encourage you to donate some clothes - especially during the winter months. I have 2 big bags of things to take to Goodwill and urge everyone to follow suit. We must all do our part to try and prevent instances like this hot mess from walking the streets!

SMDH!! Was he 4 Real? I know it was cold on this day! Wow. Well I got clothes I'm about to donate too. So I hope a coat and some sweats or something find their way to him.

I swear CTA gives you constant blog material. You'll definitely be able to blog daily. lol
