Way Bummed

[Overheard] The woman came out of an office near the Scott M. Matheson Courthouse in downtown Salt Lake City today. It was lunch hour. She was dressed for Halloween in purple fishnets and t-strapped heels, an oversized faux-fur coat with padded shoulders, c. 1984. She wore a platinum blond curly wig-- like Orphan Annie curly. I think she was dressed as a hooker. Or someone from the cast of Chicago. Or Orphan Annie, but platinum.

I passed her just as she said this into her phone:

"No, I'm way bummed. Just way bummed. If you go tonight and I don't go, which I can't because I have to be at another party, you'll see Sarah there and you'll just end up sleeping with her. I'm just so bummed."

Sometimes Halloween is one big gamble. (Holly Mullen)
