She didn't go anywhere but to pieces!

Remember the H is for Head and Hair mannequin? When I didn't see her any longer as I rode by on the No. 18 bus, I figured she'd left for another display window somewhere; that's what I told y'all in the post.

One day last week as we rode by the store windows, I caught a glimpse of several other mannequins--the kind from the waist up--sitting on the floor in what looked like dressing rooms without their doors. Naturally, I got off the bus to investigate and found a surprise.

There she was, our H girl, in pieces in a dressing room, all by herself.

To the left of her face, you can see her hands with their bright red nails--I guess her arms are tucked out of sight at the ends of her hands--and beside the back of her head, you can see her bare feet at the bottom of her long, blue-jean clad legs. All. To. Pieces. Drat.

P.S. I'm posting mighty early, changing the post time and date a whole lot, because I had an emergency trip to the dentist today--not my usual perky self, but on the mend. I'll be back better than ever which is my hope for the golden-haired mannequin.

Best wishes on your dental recovery...

One of life's little mysteries! Yes, a trip to the dentist leads to a 'wooley head' soon after, but really, the procedures have become almost pain free at the time.
I have often thought how good it must be in that corner of the States.

Poor thing! I bet she had dreams of a better life.
A bad tooth can sure make life miserable. Hope you are doing better.

Nothing worse than an unexpected visit to the dentist. :( Hope you're doing better now.

I'm glad you feel safe where you live. My husband is always reminding me to be safe even out of town where we live. Seems on the news there is always a woman missing.

Will go down to the beach and shout out a wish for a quick recovery to you! Your post is a bit macabre, with body parts all over the place! Gave me a good laugh, in a bizarre kind of way.
