The Summer People

One of the most common subspecies of Berkshires residents is the Summer People. They can be spotted on the beaches and at shops during the day, and in the evening they come in flocks to cultural institutions such as this one, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, in Becket, MA. They can be identified by their pastel coloration, unusual purses and footwear. They have a distinctive call as well -- if you can get close enough to hear it you can always identify them by their conversations about real estate.

Anyone want to submit a caption?

Not very kind, but here goes:

"Oh, so that's what they mean by 'Pillow Dance'!"


"Do you suppose you have to stuff your clothes with pillows to join in?"
