Shopping Adventures

Anyone who knows me, knows that I do not have the best driving record. Today I was out finishing up some Christmas shopping and I backed out of a parking spot to find an SUV next to me, kind of stopped diagonally. Thinking that the obvious must've happened...I backed out without looking both ways properly, I waved my hand in an apology to the other driver. Unfortunately, she was steady yelling something at me. I tried mouthing a "Sorry" but that didn't stop her either and she started motioning for me to drive up closer to her. I did, thinking this is it...I'm about to get my butt kicked for my bad driving.

Then she motioned for me to roll down my window. Oh man, I thought, and braced myself for an earful.

So I reach over to the passenger window to roll it down (one of these days I'll get a 21st century car with automatic windows) and the woman yells out at me "I like your coat!"


"I saw you walking out of the store and I wanted to tell you that your coat looks really nice. Is it cashmere?"

Um no...but thanks.

"Oh, ok. Well, I just wanted to tell you that I really liked it."

and then we both drove away. Guess I'm glad that it ended that way but seriously? Who pulls a stranger over to compliment them on their outfit? When I told my husband this story his only response was "I'll never understand women."

See, over the weekend I stopped a stranger at the mall to say I liked her hat and ask where she got it. (I was at the mall looking for one just like it and couldn't find it.) And my husband thought it was hilarious since you would never see guys do that.

True, but at least I didn't stop traffic to find out! Even I have my limits for finding cute clothes!
