The heat is making people weird

The Scream is over, and desultory monthly-ish posting will now resume here on Squiddity. I was in Kensington getting groceries today, and there was a busker in front of the bakery again. Today it was a young white woman in an ankle-length African-print muumuu, singing "Walking On Sunshine" very loudly, unaccompanied, not particularly well, into a carrot. Yup. Bouncing from side to side, holding a jumbo carrot as if it were a microphone, and singing into it. This was unusual even by Kensington standards, and people half a block away were standing on the sidewalk staring at her. The ladies in the Patty King across the street were talking about maybe calling 911.

She's been there for ages... It drives the cheese boys insane because that's exactly where they like to go for smoke breaks.

I'd never seen her before... usually in that spot I see the purple-haired guitar girl, or this singer/songwriter dude with an amp who is actually pretty good.

Does she always sing into a carrot?
