What's with the creepy baby mannequin in a downtown Walnut Creek store window?
Is it just me, or is there something about this very life-like mannequin that makes me worry that Walnut Creek has been hit with an invasion--an Invasion of the Body Snatchers--and that pretty soon our town will be filled with Pod Babies. And Pod People.
Or, has that Pod-ification of our population already started to happen? You tell me!
So, I was out and about last night, strolling up and down our lovely downtown streets, and came across a store that sells baby gear, and I saw this and other mannequins modeling the coolest of the cool baby fashions and baby accessories. The clothes and high-tech baby bathtub and other gear was cool, but the mannequins ... I don't know, seeing them gave me this cold, tingling feel running up and down my spine.
Well, if Walnut Creek is indeed under attack by alien invaders, remember what we learned from the classic 1956 sci-fi filmm Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Don't go to sleep! Because that's when your alien double, growing in a pod hidden by the alien leaders in your garage, emerges from its pod and takes over your identity--and your soul.
