Chicks Talk

I confess, sometimes I look at people in the subway and I try to imagine their life. I know I’m weird like that. I also do a funny thing with photos. I make up dialogues with whatever or whoever is in the shot. Usually, the first thing that comes to mind is the funniest scene. Let me show you an example. Here are two pics that I saw a while ago and I immediately linked them together.
Texte en Français
Je l’avoue, parfois je regarde les gens dans le métro et j’essaie d’imaginer leur vie. Je sais, je suis bizarre comme ça. Je fais aussi une chose amusante avec les photos. Je compose des dialogues imaginaires avec les personnes ou toutes autres choses qui figurent sur l’image. Habituellement, la première idée qui vient à l’esprit est la plus drôle. Voici un exemple. J’ai vu ces deux photos ci-dessous à des moments différents, mais leur composition m’a donné envie de les relier entre elles.

Same chit-chat or gossip, different chicks…

Hens on the Farm

I really don’t care what kind of hat she’s wearing. It’s not even Easter! And why can’t she just fit in like the rest of us? Who is she trying to impress? She acts like her eggs are too good for the farmer. Ever since Dominique styled an outfit with her in mind she’s acting as if she is a Super Star! You don’t see the bees acting like that. And you know she actually didn’t grow those fluffy feathers on her head – they are fake. They have to be! Nobody else’s feathers grow like th… Oooh wait, here she comes —hiiiiiiii, Flo! Wow, you look good today!
Note: If you want to see what Flo looks like, clic here —and yes, she is a Super Star.
Texte en Français
Je me fiche vraiment du chapeau qu’elle porte. Ce n’est même pas Pâques! Et pourquoi ne peut-elle pas s’intégrer comme le reste d’entre nous? Qui essaie-t-elle d’impressionner? Elle agit comme si ses œufs étaient trop bons pour le fermier. Depuis que Dominique a conçu une tenue avec elle en tête, elle agit comme si elle était une Super Star! Vous ne voyez pas les abeilles agir comme ça. Et je parie qu’elle n’a pas fait pousser ces plumes duveteuses sur sa tête – elles sont fausses. Elles doivent l’être sans aucun doute! Oooh attention, elle vient par ici -booonjour, Flo! Wow, tu es resplendissante aujourd’hui!

Fashionistas in Copenhagen
You would think that fashionistas always dressed appropriately, right? Well, in real life many are willing to risk frost bite wearing short sleeves and no socks even if it’s 10 degrees. That explains why the weather is one of the main topic of conversation during Fashion week. If you’re more of an introvert and don’t enjoy small talk that much, the street style crowd provides some great eavesdropping… Or you can just imagine what they are talking about, which ever you prefer.
Texte en Français
On pourrait penser que les fashionistas s’habillent toujours de façon appropriée pour les circonstances, non? Eh bien, dans la vraie vie, plusieurs sont prêtes à risquer des engelures et portent des manches courtes et aucune chaussette même s’il fait 10 degrés. Cela explique sans doute pourquoi la météo est l’un des principaux sujets de conversation pendant la semaine de la mode. Si vous êtes du type introverti et appréciez peu ces petites discussions sur la température, vous pouvez néanmoins vous amuser à écouter les conversations des fashionistas… Ou vous pouvez simplement imaginer de quoi elles parlent.

—I’m telling you, if you want to get snapped by Phil Oh you’ll have to show more skin dear —or, have yourself a tattoo. And don’t forget, always hold something in your hand such as a cup of coffee, your iPhone… A cool bag alone won’t get you that shot.
—Euh, there’s a car that wants us to get out of the way. He honked at us —totally not fashionable…
Texte en Français
—Je te le dis, si tu veux te faire prendre en photo par Phil Oh tu vas devoir montrer plus de peau chérie —ou, fais-toi faire un tatouage. Et n’oubliez pas, tiens toujours quelque chose dans tes mains. Par exemple, une tasse de café, ton iPhone… Un sac de designer ne suffit pas. Toutes les filles en ont un.
—Euh, il y a une voiture qui veut qu’on s’éloigne. Le conducteur a klaxonné —pas une façon élégante de s’adresser à des fashionistas…
Much love to you all!

    1. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE fashion. I’m just not a good model. Designers need to make some nice clothes for us round women. Why do they always put cheesy prints or sequins on them? Pfft! I’d like something a little less…hmmm I don’t even know the word I’m looking for, but you know what I mean!

    2. Yes! With no big designs or stupid sayings in glitter. What are these designers thinking? There are a few out there who aren’t insane but when I find something I like I buy it in every color because it will take me ages to find something else I like. I now own at least 8 bryn Walker linen jackets in different colors! Sigh…

    1. I know you had a bad experience in your childhood with a chicken, but I’m glad Flo is changing your vision about hens. Same goes with humans. We can’t let one bad date affect us. Otherwise we wouldn’t even get married!

  1. Hehe! Your dialogues are so much fun, Dominique!!! Totally love it! You really need to write a whole book about this: putting together photos and your wonderfully hilarious stories! 😄❤

    1. You know I was thinking of you while doing this post, right? You are making up conversations daily. Your life must be filled with laughter, my friend. 😃

  2. I partake in the gossip of how oddly people dress… but I also appreciate a great outfit that’s out of the norm.
    The line is thin between fashion and being judged by people who want everyone to look the same.

    My everyday look comes down to comfort and being socially acceptable. My closet has items Flo would be jealous of….. 😉 My hat collection was just waiting for that invite to the royal wedding. I’m still waiting to find a swim-cap worthy of a day at the beach. (No one wants wet hair while being judged for wearing a bikini in public. Flo knows this haha)

    Have a great day. 🙂

    1. Glad that you like it. It’s so hard to write funny things. My hat off to all those bloggers out there who do it. I feel this is out of my league. But I will keep trying once in a while.
