Mystery Lady.

On the way back home from a haircut, one lady on a scooter waved to me and shouted Hi. I did not wave back as I did not recognise her and thought that she must have waved to someone else. I was about to enter the gate to our home when the same lady returned and stopped near me and asked me why I did not respond. I asked her in turn as to how I could without being able to identify who it was that waved to me.

Amazingly, it was only then that she realised that her face was covered up completely and she apologised profusely, showed me her face and we had a bit of a chat before she pushed off.

No, she is not a Muslim wearing a hijab. Ladies here cover themselves up like that to avoid getting their skin and hair affected by air pollution and I suspect, some at least from the rays of our relentless sun.

The lady is reading this and I hope that in future she will not wave to people while looking like that.

  1. I think she should continue to dress like that and also wave to people. If she had simply said, “Hi, Ramana!” you would have known she meant you. She also could have mentioned her own name.

  2. Fancy an old codger like you, still being able to ‘pull the birds’ Ramana. Even if this one did look like a basket of laundry. 🙂

    1. The universe is conspiring to keep your compliments from reaching me but not succeeding! Thank you Tammy. I did not even cast a fly in this instance Tammy. It was more like the flying fish landing in the dinghy!
