Salt and Pepper Turban
Mapping the court's corridors, there are many samples to see.. One of them is a senior counsel, of whose name I do not know, comes every time with a wig. Now if it were a regular wig, I'd notice once, stare and forget about it but then this one's a little wierd. It's a long bunch of hair twisted around the temples like a semi turban, seeking more than a glance from me! I wonder, is he not aware of the attention he draws, does he think it is cool-- the twisted hair turban, which is all salt and pepper, or does he simply not care? But if he didn't care, all it would take him would be to walk around bald, isn't it?
Any way, so I follow him, thinking him to be one of the fuddy-duddies and am astounded when I stand in a courtroom listening to him argue. The judge is intent on getting his point because he speaks too much sense!
Now, I cannot get my inquisitive mind to stop wondering the secret behind the crazy salt and pepper turban! Is it, like, he has taken some oath not to cut his hair and his hair have given up on him?
But does it matter to look good to speak good?
Does looking good merit more attention or does sensible articulate talk get it for you?
I'm still thinking about this one!
