Okay, That Was Weird

My mom and I ran to Walmart tonight to pick up just a few things, and as is always the case, we ended up standing in line for a longer period of time than it took us to drive to the store and grab what we wanted. I decided to amuse myself by making up stories about the people with us in line and relating them to my mother sotto voce. We were vastly amused with ourselves.

The young man standing right in front of us was holding a Snow White DVD. I told my mom that he was purchasing the movie for his little niece, Angela. When we got to the front of the line, at long last, our bodies practically having wasted away to skeletal remains, my mom said to the young man, "So, are you buying that movie for your niece, Angela?"

He gave her the strangest look. "No, I'm buying it for my sister Angela."

"You're kidding me, right?" my mom said. "Your sister's name is Angela?"

"Yeah," he said, and scurried away.

I should start a psychic hotline ...

Oooh. Spooky.

Of course, I expect nothing short of weird whenever I to Wal-Mart.

So, can you guess what I had for breakfast?

Whoa. Tell me my future! Tell me my future!!

Okay, don't. If there's anything I've learned from reading/watching any kind of sci-fi, it's that once I know, I'll screw it up somehow. But at least I'll always know what that twinkle is in your eye when you look at people! ;)

That is just freaky! Whenever I'm at the big W, I tend to keep my eyes down and rush as fast as I can...we have some real strange one that visit the one closest to me. Perhaps now I'll look at telling myself stories about the people who scare me just a little bit! :)
