The Absurd and Amazing Adventures of Cafe Girl: Scarves

May 19, 2008


I'm a big fan of the blog Stuff White People Like. It's a tongue-in-cheek look at common things White People are a big fan of, including anything ethnic, anything not American and anything organic/fair trade.

In April, the site did a post about scarves, how White People loved them because it helped to regulate White People's inconsistent body temperatures and set them apart from other White People. I laughed at the time, and then...

Saturday, at my neighborhood Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, I saw a white woman, wearing a white scarf and a sundress. Again, not a problem, except the temperature on Saturday in Los Angeles was something close to 100 degrees. Yep, it was one of those California heatwaves with record high temperatures. And there she was -- White Woman in a sleeveless sundress and a scarf.

I think this counts both as Amazing and Absurd, don't you?
