The Unexpected Moment

7 06 2012

Yesterday I wrote the blog post below. I thought it was about a funny moment in my life, one that was totally odd and unexpected. Imagine my hurt feelings when not a soul out in the blog world liked it or commented on it. “Blogging can be so difficult, ” I thought.  Then this morning I discovered that I never hit the “publish” button. I feel so much better now about the blogging world and so much worse about my own ineptitude!  

I stopped by my local 99 cent store yesterday to pick up a few things. While I was standing in the stationary aisle a lady approached me and asked where the next nearest 99 cent store was. I explained where they were, twice, or maybe three or four times. She didn’t seem familiar with the area even though she said she lived near by. She then began to explain to me that she had previously purchased a bra from that particular 99 cent store and she really loved it…and then, I kid you not, she pulled her shirt out of her pants and lifted it up so I could admire and appreciate the fine features of her bra, the one she was currently wearing….

I can truthfully say that I have never had a total stranger lift their shirt in the middle of a store and show me their bra. I hope it never happens again, actually. Other than modeling her bra for me she seemed reasonably normal… If you are wondering what I did…I just kept my cool, kept on chatting, and edged away.    Certainly a memorable moment in my local 99 cent store!

I was wondering what happened to yesterday’s blog! Maybe that lady is/was an exotic dancer.

I’m not sure what’s more disturbing…buying a bra in a 99 cent store or showing a complete stranger a bra you bought in a 99 cent store. I’m sure glad you remembered to hit the publish button on this one 🙂

Are you telling me that people don’t show you their bras when YOU go shopping?!? What can I say, we are just so wild and crazy here in California!!
