What she wore: black gauchos with a white pin-stripe, white tee, black strappy slides with a stacked heel. The computer lab lady told me I’ve been looking nice lately. Thanks!
Well, yesterday was real serious, and Zwebby reminded me of a little story from my past that I think will give you a giggle, so here goes:
I have what can only be described as talking-itis. I can and will talk to a brick wall. I talk ALL the time and sometimes I can say things that sound just plain stupid. This was one of those times.
I went into a gas station when I first moved to Arkansas to buy a Reese’s fast break (yummy!). The clerk had on a shirt that said, "Today could be Your Lucky Day." I assume that this is some kind of lottery promotion. Little did I know, there is no lottery in Arkansas (who knew?). So, I say to the clerk, "do you think today could be my lucky day?" This little blond twenty-something chick takes one look at me and says, "yeah, ummm, I’m straight."
Imagine my embarassment. She thought I was hitting on her (and with a pretty crappy pickup line).
I say, "yeah, me too. I’m married, in fact, I didn’t mean it like that" Stumble. Mutter. Pay for fast break and run to the car.
Needless to say, I’ve never been back to that gas station.
