Tommy is the new pink

Volcano promoter caught pink handed

Tommy Carson, Weekly Volcano promoter extraordinaire, flashed his duds at Saturday’s Head to Toe Hair and Fashion Extravaganza at the Tacoma Elks Lodge, explaining that he purchased the whole thing at Mr. Mac’s on Martin Luther King Way.

“I saw it, I liked it, I put it together,” he explains of the long pink suit coat, purple shirt and pink crocodile shoes, all capped off with a pink wool fedora (to hide the fact that he’s shaved in a space where hair is exalted.)

Carson laughs when he recalls his neighbors, hauling in a barbeque, hollering “ooooooh, pimp!” across the street at him, but I see the glances women are throwing his way.

I overhear one woman saying, “That takes some confidence to pull off,” as she smiles his way.

[Mr. Mac Ltd., 1210 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Tacoma, 253.383.2737]
