Old Woman in a Leopard Print Hat

An old woman, looking eccentric and wearing a leopard print hat, got on the bus today.  One day I hope to be an eccentric old woman and there is a very good chance it will involve something equivalent to the leopard print hat, so I was not paying particular attention.

I didn't get to not pay attention for long.  At a high volume she gave her views on nuns, Catholicism, priests, abortion, the stoning of Joan of Arc (she was actually burnt at the stake), and had got on to how gay bus drivers won't stop for women by the time I fled the bus.  Alf Garnett would have looked a little askance.

I think I will just aim for the look and not the content.
