The origin for the hippie girl was actually a short story about a sloppy guy who's changed into a waifish vegan hippie during a "time storm" that alters all of reality. But I used it again in Transformed for Thanksgiving. In that story a wife is sick of her husband being an insensitive jerk who just sits around watching football and drinking beer while she slaves away in the kitchen. As she breaks the wishbone, she wishes he could be nice and sensitive. But be careful what you wish for, right?
You've got the long hair that hasn't probably been washed in a while, the wire-framed granny glasses, the long paisley skirt, the sandals, and not a lot of makeup because that's tested on animals. You could see her at a PETA rally, right?
