Jake and I headed out to the grocery store after dropping Preston off at work today. And after we wasted time wondering through the various aisles secretly hoping something would pop out at me that I just had to buy (which I didn't) we ended up in the section where we needed to be, the fruit and vegie aisles. There was this produce guy who looked my age, unloading fruit and he kept looking at me, I mean how can you not right? (ha ha) Then he says, "So is the little boy your brother or are you babysitting?" !!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness! I wish it would have been appropriate to burst out laughing and tell him that if that was in fact a pick up line it was terrible. I think he was trying to scope out to see my situation...who knows... some guys just aren't smooth. I guess I should get a bigger ring cause that in itself should be pretty obvious! In response to what he said, I looked at him wide eyed and surprised and said, I know I look like I'm 17, but I'm definitely not and he is my son." Awkward! So I walked away.
But it brings me back to a conversation I had with my friend Kristin, about how you interact with strangers of the opposite sex without them thinking your flirting. How can you just be nice? Maybe it's tone of voice. hmmm who knows! Sometimes it seems you just have to be a snob for them not to think you're being too nice.
Anyway, it made for a good laugh.
