ghostpaw is confused by and confuses other people.

What drove it home, in a way, is striking up the random conversation with a stranger, who was outside having a cigarette. He admitted he started talking to me because I was so obviously 'not from around here', and that it was obvious because of the hat. Most people don't wear hats, let alone dark red, 1930s style cloche hats with tweed flowers on them. Also, apparently, most people don't generally let you try their hat on, then carry on nattering with no obvious ulteriour motive. I never realised that my tendency to quite happily talk to anyone who's happy to talk to me was quite so odd.

Context is feeling out of place.
