Location: Grocery Store aisle
Grocery store employee: (Reaches arm out to stop me while I'm walking past) "Gymboree and Crazy 8's are having huge sales right now on clothes."
Me: "Oh thanks! I actually just talked to my mom and she was in Carter's trying not to buy everything!"
Location: Starbucks, 6:15 a.m.
Very Nice Random man: "Is this your first?"
Me: "Yes it is."
VNRM: "Congratulations. Do you know what you are having?"
Me: "A girl."
VNRM: (smiles) "Ten years from now, you will be tired of all the back talk."
Me: (reaches for my coffee at the bar; said sweetly and sarcastically) "Well, I was a perfect child so I'm sure I have nothing to worry about."
VNRM: "So was I! Congratulations again!"
I then sent my sister a text, sharing his comment. Her response:
"I agree with him." LOL. #girlmomproblems
Stay tuned for more "Conversations with Strangers" over the next 8 weeks!
