Everyone’s A Tattle-Tale

posted by Momo Fali on October 16, 2007

At the grocery store the other day, I was approached by a man. Yes, you read that correctly. I was approached by a man. Me! An upper-30ish…uh…”big-boned” woman, who not only still gets zits on my face, but who currently also has two zits ON MY NECK…approached BY A MAN.

He walked over, smiled and said, “I really like your glasses.” Oh, did I forget to mention that? I wear glasses too.

Nevertheless, I thanked him. Then he responded, “No. I really like them.”

Again I said, “Thank you.”

Then he pulled his cart next to mine, leaned closer and whispered, “I was just distracting your daughter. I wanted to let you know that I heard you tell her to get some Shredded Wheat, but instead she put a box of Lucky Charms in your cart”.

    Ha! That’s kind of a weird distraction technique, though.

    Still getting zits while in your thirties is a cruel, cruel trick of nature. It should be the one thing you are safe from by this age, but, alas . . .

  • newnorth

  • ~JJ!



    He totally told.

    I have zits too. Never fear. We all get them!

    Sounds like this guy is a complete weirdo. Was he stalking you and watching you and your daughter? Sounds like a classic child molester or deviant to me.
