Your Story Here

I thought at first it was a dead animal. Roadkill.

Instinctively, I averted my gaze and tried not to drive over the pile of matted fur that was lying in the middle of Baltimore's Greenspring Avenue.

But then I got a better look and realized it wasn't a carcass at all. It was Human hair. And lots of it. Cascading curls, to be exact. Now I'm no expert on wigs, but I'm pretty sure it was what's called a "fall": a hairpiece meant to be worn in addition to one's own hair rather than in place of it.

But why was it lying in the middle of a busy city thoroughfare? And did it have anything to do with that poor orphaned shoe I wrote about last month?

It's Wednesday. I'm wordless. What have you got? ;-)


  1. Lord have mercy, The real question is:why did you get closer to that thing?

  2. Oh my gosh! I ALWAYS wonder about the pairless shoes you occasionally see beside the road--I missed your post on this, I'll have to go back and read it. The hair though! OH MY...there HAS to be a good story there.

  3. Someone left the top down. :)

  4. That's the "piece" that Elaine ripped off George's head and threw out of Jerry's window.


  5. For someone who claims to not know a lot about hairpieces, you seem to know what a "fall" is. I'm just sayin.....

  6. Creepy and gross.

    I think it was a couple of girls fighting in the middle of the street and one pulled it out of the other's hair.
