on the buses

The other day, I read an entry on Dreadful Nonsense that mentioned a woman getting on the bus wearing a grotesque jacket bedecked with pictures of huskies. Ho ho, I thought, how amusing, I wish I could see such a fantastically fugly item of clothing.

Well, the moral of this entry is BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, because last night I was sitting on the bus and a woman got on and sat in front of me wearing.....a white jacket covered in pictures of huskies. Now, either there are two woman travelling up and down the Stillorgan dual carriageway clad in hideous husky jackets, or this was the same woman. And OH MY GOD, MY EYES. I think I have been almost blinded by this hideous vision. I was not aware that the jacket was fluffy and fleecey, giving the huskies a naturalistic furry appearance. There was something almost mesmerising about their hideousness, which is the only excuse I can give for someone purchasing such a garment. Seriously, it was absolutely fucking horrible. On the plus side, I had been feeling that I was looking a bit scruffy, and the sight of the woman wearing a husky jacket made me realise that actually I was a radiant vision of sophistication. Which is always good.

I've seen one, I've seen one! Just last week a woman in front of me on the street was wearing a hideous jacket featuring two huskies curled up together on the back.

Husky jackets are obviously It, at the moment.

Why? WHY? It's the most bizarre and evil craze ever.

See, that sounds like the sort of thing I can just imagine myself buying, just so I could revel in its hideousness. Did she look like she was wearing it ironically?

I used to sing with a woman who had a garment from the same range but featuring owls. She was a nice person but I am always a bit wary of grown ups who wear novelty socks.

Indeed. They are the "you don't have to be mad to work here but it helps" sign of the clothing world.

Oh god. Furry huskies?

No coffee to spill thankfully...

The husky is the mascot of my current institution of higher learning (University of Washington) which is a hugely successful sports school. So you have lots of middle-aged alums riding to the stadium on game days with their faces painted purple, carrying purple stuff, wearing big poofy purple jackets. My point? Um, that jacket sounds uglier. Aughh.

That is just fantastic. I'm so impressed someone else has seen her - yes, it must be her, we're obviously travelling on the same bus route. I'm curious to see what she's going to come up with when the weather gets a little better, and fleecy huskies are just not practical any more.

Maybe she has a full range of husky clothing, and will step out in some fetching husky vests, t-shirts, and lightweight jackets. Who knows? If she can wear that grotesque garment, anything is possible.

And, I guessed it was my bus route in your entry - but I didn't expect to see the husky woman herself! I nearly laughed aloud when she emerged at the top of the stairs in all her fluffy glory...
