Victim #2: Now while the boy in the hat could be seen as a little strange, it is the woman with the blue hair that I am directly referring to. What you are looking at is not a wig, and most definitely not a joke. One of her relatives described her to me as “crazy.” I never would have guessed.
Well there are a few things to point out, besides the fact that she dyed her hair an electrifying blue. Firstly, she matched her hair to her sweater. If you’re going to attempt pulling off blue hair, especially at her age, at least attempt to wear something a little less…blue. Unless that is she’s attempting to look like a smurf.
Another thing that should be pointed out is that she was the grandmother of the bride. Anyone, including myself, who had never met the bride or her family would find it quite concerning that he grandmother voluntarily dyed her hair blue. If this gene runs in the family, the bride could decide to go neon green and dye her kids hair purple. Who knows!
Needless to say, the woman seemed to have no clue that everyone and their mother was staring at her during her grandiose entrance, and while she was in the buffet line, and while she was eating. You get the point. I guess while having blue hair if you are a human is a little off putting, she did wear it with confidence. Unfortunately, confidence can’t fix blue hair on an 80 year old woman.
Moral of the story? If you are old and crazy, dont put salt in the wound and dye your hair an obnoxious color.
Tip to my fellow people watchers: If you are at a banquet or other formal event, you have to be sneaky. Pull out your phone and zoom
