The Professor taught me a very important lesson today. Say one day you’re feeling pretty (guys, just roll with it), maybe because you finally got to shave your legs yesterday, so you decide to dress like a civilized human being instead of a t-shirt, PJ pants clad cave monster. May I suggest that you don’t decide to wear a shirt with a low neck line while running your errands with the baby? At least if you have a breast-fed baby. Because he will decide that he is hungry RIGHT NOW and tell you by pulling your shirt down, exposing your mommy-bits to the world. In this case, the 50-something clerk at Wal-Mart, and a mother with her 2 elementary age children in line behind me. The clerk thought it was adorable. “Aww, are you hungry little boy?” The mother was appalled, giving me a look like I did this on purpose, and tried to cover the eyes of her 7-ish year old son, who really didn’t care. He was eying a different rack at the time. The candy rack. The kid has his priorities straight, at least.
As I leave the store, all I can think is “Well, no one knows me here, yet. At least I wore a pretty bra today. I gave a bedraggled Wal-Mart employee a much needed laugh. And now I have something to blog about tomorrow! Always the optimist.
