Tie-Dye Tights

Yesterday I was having one of those days, nothing seemed to be going as planned. While I had taken my car in to get the mysterious no brake fluid problem checked out, I decided to take my cross bike out for a little ride in a part of town I don't usually go to.....blow off some steam. It starts off a little chilly, but I'm just happy to be away from everything for an hour or so, off in my own little world. So when I see him, I'm not 100% sure that I'm not daydreaming. From far away, he just looks like a guy wearing a purple fleece coat, nothing odd about that. But as I get closer, I can't help but stare at the unusual choice clothes for a walk in the park. It's a round little man, with a big grey beard and and grey hair, hiking boots and a purple fleece coat. But that's where normal ends.....he's wearing what looks like a women's black one piece bathing suit with blue and green tie-dyed tights underneath.....what the... Not sure if I'm in my happy place dreaming about bunny rabbits and elves, I do a double, then a triple and probably even a quadruple take...nope, I'm really seeing it. Somehow I manage to roll by keeping a somewhat straight face, only to collapse on a park bench (hopefully out of earshot) with another cyclist who's just seen the same thing and we laugh till I'm almost crying.....you definitely don't see that everyday.
