On Facebook I had 9 people who weighed in and so I guess I feel flattered.
As I was paying the bill at an eating spot where James and I had a meal I made a comment about the coffee cup the lady at the cash register was holding and taking sips. For the record I have talked with the lady aged 30-32 before over time while paying for my food. She has laughed with me over silly chit-chat topics, and that has been all there ever was to the interactions.
“What type of coffee are you enjoying today?” I asked.
“Oh, this is only honey and lemon and water for my throat as I am trying to get over the last of a cold’, she responded. “But I can not wait to get back to coffee, as right now it just upsets my stomach”, she added.
Then she looked up from the register to my face and continued, “I also want to start an affair.” And she giggled.
People who know me understand I am usually not at a loss for words. But I was not sure what to say after her remark so I just laughed and quickly put my credit card into my wallet and then that into my jeans.
Now I must say my new glasses and hair cut make me look nice, but I have not been hit on for some time, and I am not really sure I was today, but still find this an odd thing to say to a person one really does not know.
Anyone care to offer insight?
(And you thought we only talked politics here!)
