A Tad Creepy.....

So Michael and I stopped at the gas station the other night. He "gassed up" while I went inside to buy beer and a drink that Michael wanted. I went in right after a man who actually ended up following me in. He held the door for me, and then followed me around the store. I opened the little door thing in the refrigerated area to get Michael's drink and grabbed his drink. Then realized the bottle was sticky. So I went to open the door again to get a clean bottle and creepy guy was there. I attempted to shut the door so that he could squeeze by, and he made the signal to go for it, no worries. (Which meant he wanted me to bend over again for him.....). So I grab Michael's drink and start walking towards the beer area. This random girl says "Can I tell you something?" from across the store. She runs up to me and proceeds to tell me that I have the perfect body. And then continues giving me details on how I have the perfect body. Explicit details......

As I am a nice person, I thank her for the compliment. I finally find what I need to get and walk to the counter to check out. I hear "There's the hot girl again!". Apparently, the woman that adored me was just in the bathroom and not gone. So she again told me how I have the perfect body while I am buying beer and wine at the check-out.

As weird and creepy as the whole situation was- I FEEL GOOD. She wasn't ugly. She wasn't dirty. She wasn't gross. And here this woman felt the need (probably a drunken need) to tell me that I look amazing. She literally told me that she didn't "GO" that way, but if she did it would be me. Granted, she was probably completely drunk or stoned or whatever. But I choose to take it as a complete compliment.

I'm writing about it because it was one of the most random and weird things, yet it made me feel confident.

So thank you, random drunk and/or drugged out girl! Thank you.

Other than that, Michael and I made progress this weekend. We bought a lawnmower and I actually used it a bit to help mow the lawn. Michael did most of it, but I figured I should probably help out, so I did. And then we were in the mood- so we started doing yardwork together. Michael said "This is our first time doing yardwork together", and it's true. So it was nice. We have plans for the yard. And I have actually stepped in and helped, as opposed to just having Michael do it all. So that's great! I shoveled and he dug, and it's looking good. We have plans....

Anyways, it's time for bed. Especially since I'm trying to work a 12-hour day tomorrow.....

And just so people know- I HATE anonymous comments. Be yourself, that's all I ask....

Much Love!

Awesome! I can completely relate to the unusual-yet-somehow-flattering compliment. For me, it's usually from a 'gentleman' that, were I to swing that way, I would likely consider a prospect. It's been a while since it's happened and frankly, this realization makes me a little sad, but once every six months or so keeps me going.

Linds- considering that you and I are SO similar, then that automatically means that you know that YOU have a hot bod, right? :)

William- I totally know what you mean! Sometimes it's the unexpected compliments that mean the most, huh? Good to hear from you!
