Character Sketch #5

Furry hat and mustard shoes, on a mission to shop. The bags twist around her wrist as she marches, but she continues on. 

She pushes her baby in the rented fire truck stroller and complains to her friend. “I’m 17, I’m halfway legal. She can’t really tell me what to do.”

Her hair is green and gray and charcoal, piled meticulously atop her head. The shoulder-riding baby near her can’t keep his eyes off that hair.
