I hate crowds! I also hate shopping! I guess that not only makes me unAmerican, but also the atypical female. Sometimes I used to go grocery shopping late at night to avoid the crowds. Very late on night, I went to Walmart where I encountered a middle-aged couple ahead of me in the checkout line purchasing 3 items. I made the following observations about the couple:
1. They were a well-dressed, affluent, middle-aged couple.
2. They were obviously enamored with each other because they made frequent passionate public displays of affection (PDA)
My smile turned to utter delight as I became mentally captivated by the 3 items they purchased. To this day I often wonder why any couple would come to Walmart at 2 a.m. to buy a roll of duct tape, a reclining lawn chair and a can of whipped cream! No, I didn't follow them home, but I have to admit I was tempted!
Gratitude statement: I'm thankful for having a keen power of observation and enough sense to know when to leave well enough alone!
