I am the only customer in the dark little store. There is a sole female clerk, wearing a short, tightly fitting dress with broad shiny bangles, multiple golden rings on several of her fingers and large golden earrings dangling from her ears, standing behind the counter. I choose three items…
“I would like to have these three, please; each in a paper envelope.”
Meticulously, she removes each from its plastic case, folds the labels, and slips them into paper envelopes. The task takes longer than it should due to her very long, gem-studded fingernails, and her frequent furtive glances in my direction.
“I remember you.”
“You do?… Is it because of the extra work I’m having you do with the envelopes?”
“It’s no problem. You were in here a few months ago.” (She hands the envelopes to me.)

Walking with my arms folded, I meet two female acquaintances…
Woman One: “Ooo, Muscles!”
She grabs my right upper-arm and squeezes it.
Woman Two to Woman One: “You know, we’re not supposed to do this. May I?”
She lets her hand slide over my other arm.
Satisfied, they continue on their way…

“Good afternoon, I would like to order two medium…”
“Oh you want medium this time?”
“But I usually order the mediu…”
“We only have large and small boxes today, so I’ll give you two large for the medium price.”
“Just one large should be fine, thank yo…”
She walks away, fills two large boxes, then brings them to me. This the second time she has done this. Is she trying to fatten me up?

Why are women trying to set me up for play-dates with their husbands?

Later, another older woman reaches through the driver side window and begins stroking my face:
“I’ve always told you that if I was a few years younger…”
And I think:
“No, what you used to say is you wish you had a daughter my age.”

Everybody wants to be crazy but nobody wants to be crazy.

“I just came by to say ‘Hi.’ Actually, I’ll be back in a few minutes. But, I feel like I haven’t seen you in about ten years.”
(But… she saw me last Friday. )
