I was looking for a winter coat and therefore went to different stores, boutiques and shops and as usual when you are looking for something you find nothing.
In one store I saw a beautiful mannequin, in a black velvet suit, black patent shoes and white socks, which were the only "color" spot in the whole outfit and the mannequin too, because obviously it was a black one. I could only see the back, but admired the velvet suit which looked really very elegant. I suddenly remembered that Mr. G. once also had a velvet suit, that must have been in the 70th but it had been brown. At that time he was a fashion freak and not comparable to the "garbage" look he has today, he doesn't care about fashion or clothes at all anymore. How people can change.
Anyway my mannequin suddenly became alive moved and turned around. What I saw was a handsome very tall black man with a large smile on his face showing white teeth that all dentists in the world only can dream of. He had seen the shock on my face and that made him smile !
I quickly recovered and told him that I am sorry to stare at him like an old lady in a zoo, but that I had taken him for a mannequin and was shocked when it suddenly turned around. That made him laugh out loud and me too ! I told him that I liked his velvet suit and that he looked very elegant. He was very pleased, he was not more than in his 20th. I smiled again and went away, avoiding mannequins.
