So it's about eight o'clock PM, and I'm fixing a late supper, when I hear someone pull into my driveway and honk the horn. Now normally by this time of the evening I'm pretty settled in, and can usually count on being left alone. Who can it be? (shades of Men At Work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOuEYSJCFqE)
I'm thinking maybe it's the post lady. She's the only one who usually honks when she comes into my driveway, but it's way to late for her to come by. Normally I would just play opossum, but all the lights were on, and there was jazz playing on the radio. What the hell, I thought, I'll just answer the door, and sure enough in about five seconds I hear a knock. So I go to the door and open it. Standing on the deck is a young guy in his twenties, and and I say, "Yes?" He immediately launches into a sales pitch. It seems he's selling frozen fish & chicken fillets, and steaks. He doesn't seem to notice that anything is strange, even though I am standing there wearing the the white puff sleeve top and gold hoop earrings that I have on in the picture above, a pair of pink shorts, and a pair black patent leather thong sandals, with my toenails painted dark red. As he finishes his sales pitch, I say no thanks, and he asks if I'm sure, saying he has some good deals. I reiterate that I'm not interested, but since I'm not used to talking in my female voice, I let my pitch drop, and he sort of gives me a funny look. Then he asks, "Are you sure?", and once again I said, "No thanks, I'm really not interested." He says, "OK , thanks!", and he starts to turn and walk away, but turns his head back to give me one more look before descending the steps and heading to his truck.
LOL! Oh God, it was precious! I walked back inside, with a grin stretching from ear to ear! I think my trip out last week, gave me a lot more confidence in myself as Melissa, than I realized.
