Hair, Drugs, and Rock and Roll

14 11 2011

We went to see the San Francisco Symphony perform Schubert last night. It was a bit of a night out on the town: wonderful vegan Thai food, a walk around San Fran, and some highbrow classical music. (Watched from second row center front orchestra, thanks to rush tickets.) This is the first time that we’ve really been ‘out’ in a major city with our whack hair. Two observations:

  1. A guy who was working in a perfectly normal and vanilla store was giving us suggestions of places to visit. He told us that we could go to a specific place in the Mission District if we were interested in picking up any drugs. I didn’t think anything of it, but Ayo pointed out afterwards that no one had ever really said that to us. Ever. She was pretty convinced that our hair had something to do with it. I was a bit surprised, but agreed.
  2. We were on the BART train home later that night when Ayo befriended her seatmate. (He ended up being “the voice” of professional wrestling. We meet some fun folks.) He asked us if we had gone out that night and we said that we were on our way back from the symphony at Davies Hall. He was joking around, but his response was “No rock concert?”
It’s totally the hair, man. The hair.
Symphonic Rock?

Symphonic Rock?

Love it! It’s so the hair! Makes you think though doesn’t it? You can always change your hair, but things like skin color, weight for some people, height…less so.

True that. I’ve also found that the hair is an excuse for random people to talk to me – a conversation starter.

I didn’t even think to take it to that logical next step. Food for thought.

Haha…it MUST be the hair! Amazing how hair color can completely change how you’re viewed. You’re in my ‘ol hometown. Love the area! Would recommend a trip to the coast (just south of the city), an Irish Coffee at the Buena Vista Cafe (it’s touristy, but totally worth it) and of course a visit to the MOMA (Fri evening is free!)

Ooh, thanks for the tips! We’ve just started exploring San Fran and found our way over to Buena Vista park. (My legs are still feeling that climb.)

We’re not big coffee drinkers, but the MOMA sounds fantastic! See you soon. 🙂

I’m thinking you could guide planes in to land on a dark, foggy night with that hair. A little extra income for that service… ;c)
