Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Wednesday, 21 May 2008

I went to Home Despot today to get some necessary items for home improvement (new kitchen faucet) and yard improvement (cedar mulch I know, I just bought some…but I needed more).

As I was loading everything into the van, a grey-haired older lady walked up to me, and said:

“Oh my goodness!  Did you load all of that yourself?!”

I thought “Gee, what do those bags weigh? 20 lbs? I didn’t even notice.”

I said, “Yes.”

And then…

…I shit you not…

She reached out her hand, grabbed my upper arm, and felt my muscles.

“Wow!  You’re doing great!  And at your age too!  Keep it up!”

And then she walked off while my brain spun little hamster circles for a while trying to figure out what happened.

John,

I'm 40. I probably look older when I go out in just a pony-tail and no make-up and sweats like I was today (for yard work, etc)...but geeze...

Tony got a bit of that for going back to school, "At your age? Wow!"

When did 40 equal foot-in-the-grave?

I'd say she meant it to be a compliment. Clumsy, in the way that people are AT HER AGE. :-)
