Some people are just fun to be around.
You know the type..They have that next level brand of personality,that makes your average everyday stuff seem like an adventure.
That would be Sar..
Sar is a dear friend of the family that has come up from the Bay Area,in an effort to make some positive changes in her life,..which is a whole other story that I might relate at some future date.Suffice it to say,"Been there..Done that".
Anywhiz..I come out of my room the other night,to find her doing the "Happy Dance" in the living room.Now,I've been around long enough to recognize the symptoms.
"You got yer period,didn't you?"..(This had been a matter of some concern).
"YES!"..Happy dance some more..
"Go to the store with me,I need to get some Tampons!"..
I guess this kind of thing is uncomfortable for some guys,but this is nothing new under the sun for me.
A big sister,two wives,and various assorted and sundry live-ins has rendered me immune to the whole late night ritual of tossing a box of feminine protection on the checkout stand.Hell,as long as I'm there,I may as well get a bottle o' whiskey,..you know,..for medicinal purposes.
Food-Maxx is one of those huge stores where you can buy stuff at a tidy discount.You bag your own items,and enjoy some small savings for the effort..It's like that.I'm just not readily familiar with the location of the product du-jur,so we look around for an employee to help us find the forbidden aisle....Meet "Scooter Boy".
Fresh out of night stocker,(I just made that up) school,proudly ensconced on his electric mini-forklift thingy,and ready to deal with any situation..
With the possible exception of Sar.
Sar: "Hey!..Scooter boy..You guys got any trial size Tampons?"..*wink*
Me: "She said she wants to try on a Tampon!"..Sar thought that was funny.
..Clearly,they hadn't covered this on orientation day...
"Oh,..aisle 3..This way".
Scooter boy kicks it in high gear,and disappears around the corner.
Sar: "Kewl!..A guided tour!"..
By the time Sar and I get to aisle 3,Scooter Boy is already there,steadfast on his electric forklift thingy,and holding a brightly colored box in each hand..
As we round the corner,he looks Sar dead in the face,(This is where his prior fast food experience kicks in),and query's..
"Umm..Did you want wings with that?"..
Me: "Sar,mind if I blog about our little shopping trip?"
Sar: "G'head..It was funny!"
Me: "Let me get a pic of you to post with it..People like that".
Sar: "Well,..I'm a little camera shy,but okay..How's this Sling?"..."Sling??"
Like I said.Some people are just fun to be around.
