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.”
…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.
