I should really caption this “Awkward situation that did happen.” You know how sometimes you’ll be followed by someone who isn’t actually following you, but just happens to be going the same place as you are? Well, last Friday there was a guy at the grocery store who was shadowing me for about 20 feet as we walked past the frozen food and fish counter in tandem. I darted down this aisle to grab some tampons, figuring I’d lose him. I assumed he’d walk as briskly as possible away from the feminine hygiene products in silent horror. But no, instead he stopped directly behind me, only 3 feet away from the maxi pads.
I pretended to scan the labels, but I was completely distracted, as if his presence made me illiterate. I finally turned around to see what his damage was. That was when I saw him grab a bag of charcoal and make a hasty getaway towards the pet food section.
The store designers at Kroger seriously need to rethink the layout of aisle 11.
And how sad is it that I now carry a digital camera around in my purse just so I can photograph moments like this for my blog? This is surely one of the signs of blog addiction.
