It was just another shopping day at the local Farmer’s Market. It was a beautiful, sunny day. I was wearing my favorite jean skirt, now about 20 years old. (Don’t laugh, we all have one!)
There was noticeable attention that morning. I’m one of those people who smiles at strangers. Today was different somehow. There were quite a few smiles being returned.
As I stood at my favorite deli counter, there were 2 young businessmen having lunch at a Vietnamese stand just behind me.
They were talking to each other, but smiling in my direction. I returned the smile, took my purchases and sauntered away. How flattering. Made my day.
I was feeling pretty good about myself. Maybe my daily exercise walks were working some kind of magic on my posterior ?
There was a 3 inch tear in the left rear pocket of my skirt.
I was sporting a pair of lavender undies with black polka dots. (Don’t even ask.)
Off to the sewing basket. sigh….
