That is, until he put himself back together. I watched with mild curiosity, as he shoved himself into a shiny, silvery, slightly puffy, too-snug jacket, then pulled on a pair of cowboy boots with his wind pants tucked into them. My gawd, THE Tom Brokaw looked like a total dork!
It got me thinking about all the silly things I've seen in my job over the years, mostly when I worked in Denver. People are fascinating. Sometimes a bit gross, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes flat out what. the. fuck?
I've seen a grown man dressed as a bunny; a grown man dressed as a banana; a young 20-something couple, both wearing mouse ears and tails; twice I saw the same man in a kilt who would bend over on purpose to show his large white pendulous balls (even blogged about that one here); men dressed as women; women dressed as men; and plenty of women dressed like hookers.
If you like to people-watch, pack a lunch and git on over to the nearest airport. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
***I forgot the best one of all! Last summer Lady Gaga came through the Denver Airport. This is how she looked!
