She is not around so no work required.

See you in a bit, got to do some shopping.

Okay, see you later. I will probably be asleep when you return though...

Hi;

Took longer than I thought. Big crowd on a Tuesday? Did everybody in the town run out of food at the same time?

There are always big crowds when I go, too.

Pretty stressful too. I hate it when they have their kids sitting in the basket of the cart facing the wrong way. I always catch them staring at me when I am waiting on line.

I don't mind that, unless they throw things at you.

This last one was particularly eerie. He or she just stared blankly at me without blinking and I could see it was salivating.

Sounds like a scene from a horror movie...

Yes, it was kind of strange. The parents are always not paying any attention at all and I am stuck face to face with this staring, miniature ghoul.

I cannot lie, I may have once been that baby. I think I was 3 in a pram, and there was a man behind me noticing that I was reading a book. He said "you can't read!" at which point I decided to throw a plum at him.

A plum! Did you get him? If you did do you have a video of it?

No video but I did get it on his face. He was a librarian too, 15 years later he is still working at the same library. He doesn't recognise me though!

You may have to refresh his memory some. Here is what you do: get a plum, the riper the better.

Hurl it at his ridiculous face, upon contact just stand there smiling. He will appreciate the jarring of his memory.

Most likely it will bring tears to his eyes to remember that little kid with the plum.

Maybe. I threw a lot of food at that age.

And 18 is pretty late to be having your first hug, in this day and age. I seem to be out of sync.

I accomplished that with adriana so at least I'm getting closer. Next time I will see if I can somehow get a peck on the cheek. Might happen when I am 21 but at least it is progress.
