Was he talking to me?
For some reason today of all days it stuck, like a pin I mean, I was shopping in a store, had to put on my reading glasses to make sure that the money I was giving the clerk was a 20 and not a million dollar bill or something, ha ha. I proceeded to put my glasses back in their safe little case and somehow set them down on the counter when putting my change away. I gathered my bags and headed toward the door... that is when it happened, the "young" man who was in line behind me clearly and very loudly informs me and anyone within 2 miles that "Mam, you forgot your glasses"! I froze, was he talking to me? Am I a Mam? Did he think I was hard of hearing? Funny thing was I have been called Mam before and it never fazed me, I consider it to be a polite word. Somehow the fact the he was probably over 25 and had that "I just got off my surf board" kind of look about him, I heard "Hey old lady, you left your bi-focals laying here". I was very grateful to get my glasses back, I really like my glasses, they make me look sophisticated, right? So I went home slathered on some face cream with spf 400 and focused on how wise I am, did I mention I am going to my 30 year high school reunion in September, that will make me feel better!~Jacque
