Here are some reasons I Heart Seattle.
Where else will men fling dead fish into a crowd of tourists and not be beaten to death by an angry mob?It's here that you can find gorgeous, brilliant fruit from every corner of the earth And on every corner, street performers, musicians, jugglers, and balloon artists.....no matter what the weather. Here you can find ostrich eggs, goose eggs, and quail eggs....all on a bed of multi-colored chicken eggs.It's a place where everyone puts their spare change in a giant brass piggy bank and kids wear the back smooth and glossy by riding the pig....and across the street? Another pig, made of coffee beans, and affectionately known as "Pork and Beans."It's a place where you can get donuts the size of your head
...and fruits and vegetables like brociflower and pluots There's something about the light here that makes even the mundane beautiful.....
...like when you can see sun and rain at the same time.
And nowhere else in the world are they as self-consciously aware of their own idiosyncracies. (Why yes, this IS a set of full body, adult sized, tie-dyed, drop seat pajamas)
