I took a day away from my own town, needed the change of air.
I was sitting at a café with a dear friend,
dinner time in a small town.
We saw young women with strange make-up and hair colour passing by on the sidewalk.
We just thought it was a mix of bad taste grunge and punk...
Then, two, three, five more and we stopped counting, it seemed all the young women
of this town were lacking originality and belonged to some kind of a weird movement.
I said, something is going on in this town and i need to know what it is!
We both agreed, the next time we see any of them passing by us again
i would ask what is going on.
Those two "mademoiselles" passed by.
From my table, i stopped them and asked
what is it with this type of make-up and hair colour,
all the young woman of this town are wearing those funny
hair colour and make-up...
They said, we are playing in the "Adams family" comedy,
You want to come?
I said it was unfortunately not possible and asked to take a picture of them
because suddenly, they became so beautiful and friendly, i wanted to remember.
They gave me a radiant smile, i pressed the shutter...
Solved mystery.
End of story.
