I have not been feeling attractive at all lately because I’ve been swimming in my mid-monthly blues.

However, today, while shopping in the best aisle at the grocery store, (the one where everything over 4000 calories and 80 grams of fat lives) I bumped into a man other than my own.

[This may seem to be heading south, but I’m an honest woman.]

Anyway, as I’m thoughtfully staring at the wall of goodies in front of me, searching for the Planter’s mix that best suits The Boy’s taste, this man says,


Can you believe? To me, in my scrubby jeans and tshirt, a normal-looking stranger of the opposite sex opens with a suave “hello.”

After I said the requisite hello back, and we exchanged some talk about the weather, he asked me if I wanted to “go out some time.”

Of course, I was caught by surprise as I picked the Planter’s can off the shelf, so I turned to him and said, “sorry, these are my boyfriend’s nuts.”

I'll have to visit the peanut aisle more often. I'm sure he wanted you to get your boyfriend's nuts back as soon as possible.

isn't it good to know that you can still wander the isles of the grocery store and be all "hot"? hehe

Love that comment. Something that great wouldn't have occurred to me until after I got home.
