Ok, ok, now before anyone says "boy - is she ever vain" or anything like that, I must tell you that the reason I'm talking about this is because it NEVER happens!
Tonight my hubby and I went grocery shopping together (which we NEVER do). I was quite a ways ahead of him so it looked like I was alone, and a guy went walking past the end of the row. He seemed to glance down the aisle as he was walking by, stopped, came back and continued to walk down the aisle while looking directly at me the whole time. By this time I'm standing still like a deer in the headlights and hubby is coming up behind me. The guy was like STARING me down as he went by and I thought "oh MG - he was checking me out!! I was checked out at the grocery store~!!!" So I turned to see if hubby noticed this and he of course, was looking at the groceries. He looked up at me just as I looked at him with this incredulous smile on my face and was like 'what??"
So, anyways, we got in the truck and were driving home and he says "what was that all about??" So I told him "I think that guy was checking me out!!!" To which he turns to me, makes a face, and says "yeeeeaaah right."
I'm like "I really think he was! Didn't you see him? He was looking right at me the whole time!!! I could feel his eyes on me!!" To which, again I got an eye roll. So I said "Listen!!! I don't get checked out very often. Just go with me on this one - a girl's gotta take what she can get - even if it's all in her own mind, you should support her dreams!" So then he just looked at me some more. So THEN I said "hey - it could happen - lots of people go to the grocery stores looking for dates on Friday nights!!" And then he said "yeah, but ..... It's only Tuesday." CRAP!!! So I continued on "Well, they could be there shopping for a woman ANY night of the week. It's not like you have to worry or anything - I didn't really like the look of him anyways."
BWAA hAAAA!! So then Hubby says "Was it the eye patch and the missing teeth?" LOL! And I said - "yeah - maybe that's why he was checking me out - with only one eye he would only be able to see me in one dimension!!!"
and on we went. And just for the record, he didn't have an eye patch and neither could I see any spaces where there were any teeth missing.
So, right about now you're probably wondering what's going on with the Bedazzled (well, that AND that I'm nuts) ...... Well, it's a long story but I'll tell ya anyways because I've got the gift of gab (which you already know) so here it is. I got a pair of jeans as a gift. They are dark blue and they have little diamond (fake, of course) pieces all over the back pockets. They form two wings - one on each cheek. I have to admit, they are rather sparkly but you know I really like sparkles and it's not like I picked them out for myself - but they're kind of fun so I've started wearing them.
Well, today at work my business partner and best friend (one of them)noticed these and started up with the jokes.
Hey - does SP stand for Sparkly Pants??
Hey - are you starting up a new band called "Diamond Rearo" (Diamond Rio for those who haven't heard of them"
Hey - if you hung yourself from the ceiling and we shone a bright light on you, we could have a disco"
Hey - you should go for a bike ride with those on at sunset - you could blind someone with that and they could have an accident"
Hey - If you start feeling frisky don't go rolling around in the grass - you could start a grass fire!!
Hey - You better make sure you don't shimmy up against any cars with your butt or you'll scratch the paint and get charged with vandalism.
Hey - Did you see where I put my sunglasses???
and on and on and on. I can't even remember half of them. I finally told him to quit looking at my ass, and that he was just jealous because his butt wasn't bejewelled. I also gave him the suggestion to go ahead and do something nasty to himself several times throughout the day. It didn't seem to have the effect I intended because he just kept on going. I'll get him though!!
Hey - maybe hubby didn't see the grocery store guy looking at me because he was dazzled and blinded by my pants!
heee heeee!! yeah..... today was a good day - I had a lot of fun............ even if it WAS delusional on my part!
Hope you had a good laugh, because there is a lot of doom and gloom going around DA right now, and I wanted to have a journal that would bring a smile instead of anger or disappointment.
oh - and also, I opened an account on Shadowness - if any of you are there, look me up - I only have 2 friends there!
Have a great day or night (which ever applies) my friends - and enjoy the features!
