People in Grocery Stores

So Mom and I were in the cereal aisle of the grocery store and there was this lady there and she asked us for help finding which cereal was on sale this week. So we helped her and she kept talking to us, but she was kind of turned away from us, so it took awhile for me to tell (which made her look like she was talking to herself in the meantime!). And then she spied a box of Wheaties and on the box, there was an old picture of Bruce Jenner (To commemorate the upcoming Olympics this summer.). So this lady starts going on and on about this guy (who, at the time, I had no idea who he was- and now, I only know his name because i googled him) saying, "God, he was so hot. Still is. Well...maybe not his nose, but you know... D---." and thus, she went on and on about how good-looking this olympic athlete was in his day for about five minutes. The funny part was that me and mom didn't even say anything to her, but she kept going. I think she used the word "hot" about three or four times.

It was the quirkiest* little encounter I've ever experienced! And this lady was probably in her forties or so. It just made me laugh. I love random interactions with strangers like that.

*For those of you that do not know, I have had a history of interactions with strangers, including (but not limited to) crazy chicken man, middle school boys, and a liberal on a plane.
