The Many Faces of NorthPark Center

I spent the better half of my Saturday afternoon at NorthPark, though, to be honest, it was my fault. I got my fiancee a birthday present, and it didn’t fit. Probably should’ve done some more¬†reconnoissance.

While we were there, we saw one of the greatest cross-sections of humanity I’ve ever encountered, save for a Jimmy Buffett concert.

They included:

– The man on the couch in JCrew using a woman’s hair claw (from an in-store display) to comb his own hair. He was also wearing pink pants.

– The man standing in the restroom, combing his hair (this is a common theme), while eating a large pile of the free bread from La Madeleine. He was well-dressed (read: not homeless).

– The woman wearing a surgical mask. I understand people may rag on me for this one, but you have to admit it’s a bit jarring when you see it. She had a very Contagion feel.

– Two men, freestyling in the courtyard, in the rain. They weren’t terrible, but needed all the practice time they could get.

    Curious if the person wearing the surgical mask was either a recent transplant recipient or has a compromised immune system and may be on chemotherapy for breast cancer or other? Although foreign to many of us, it is a real life saver to those in need sans the germophobe!

    What? No gangs of roving thugs? Based on previous posts, one would think the entire mall area had became a giant gang playground.

    Wow! That is an oddball cast of mall visitors. I truly miss the old, quiet Northpark… So tired of those who are there to “hang out” vs “shop”.
