Doll Face

Day 166/366: Living Statue

We were being tourists in our own city today. This woman is real, but she's pretending not to be. She stands stock still (very difficult, I'm sure) as people mill all around her. If you drop some money in the hat in front of her, she comes to life and blows you a kiss. I have to report, however, some shameful behavior. One young woman--with a huge smirk on her face--walked up to Doll Face here and dropped a rose in the hat--a tired, wilted, brown-around-the-edges rose that didn't even have a stem anymore. What kind of crappy cheap-ass behavior is that? To Doll Face's credit, she "came to life" and blew the smirker a kiss. That's show biz, I guess.
