Loonies come in many shapes and sizes.
One of my favourite types is the ‘Pot Laugher’, so-named for their penchant for sitting alone in bars, laughing at their beers. As well as the customary hearty chuckle, they express their platonic love by muttering sweet nothings in the direction of their drink.
Another brand of loony is the ‘Collector’. I’m not talking here of your normal person with a single hobby such as stamp collecting or coin collecting. I’m talking your fully blown collector of old cardboard boxes, back issues of the local paper, string, used milk cartons, KFC food wrappers – all at once.
The ‘Winter Dresser’ can be seen walking down Puckle St in the middle of summer wearing an overcoat, scarf, gloves, and woollen hat. Near relative, the ‘Summer Dresser’ is seen at the other spectrum of the scale, wearing t-shirt, shorts and thongs in the depth of winter.
Any other categories I’ve left out in my haste to get to bed? As Hans would say [listen to sidebar audio file] ‘Let me know’.
