Alright, so the other day I needed to desperately get out of my house for a little mommy time and you know what that means, grocery store!!! Yes, the grocery store is my retreat, my vacation home when I need to hide:) I love a warm late time summer drive alone, after dusk, still light enough to see out, people have been there and gone, you know around 8:00 or so at the Grocery Store kind of night! It's my library, my field trip, my joy!!! Oh, Ok, I trailed off, sorry, so I decided to extend my little trip, kick up my shoes, live a little and hang out in my car in the parking lot at Krogers and talk on the phone with my girl Ms. R (I'm giving her anonymity here:)
As, I'm sitting there having an in-depth conversation, I notice this average normal looking Michael Brady type of guy walking through the parking lot. He looked just like that photo above on the right, thick wavy hair, navy blue dickies, oxford shirt, this man was clean as a whistle! When all of sudden right in front of me he stops, stares at the ground, picks up a crumpled piece of White Tissue, cleans his nose and proceeds to open it and wipe his brow and chin.....
(I did not shoot this photo I found it on the web and it is exactly what I witnessed!)
I thought (prayed) any minute that Alan Funt of Candid Camera (for you younger folks this ole' television show was like today's Punk'd:) was going to run over to my car and say "Smile your on Candid Camera!"
No one came..... to rescue me from the nastiness I just witnessed! I whispered on the phone to Ms. R, hoping the Brady man didn't hear me or see me and she whispers back, "What, OMG oh no what's he doing now?" I was to scared to speak, I had my camera and for the first time I was to afraid to snap a picture of this simple ordinary man. Matter of fact I lowered myself in my seat because I didn't know what demonic demon had crawled inside this mans head and I sure, as all get out, didn't want him to remotely catch me looking at him!
As he walked off looking like any other normal parking lot person, my mind instantly tried to ration out what I'd just seen, I said to myself, "Maybe he dropped that tissue earlier remembered it, needed it and picked up?"
Well, the visual is now permanently stamped forever in my head, I will never look at discarded piece of white tissue the same again!
This is one of those just thought I'd share stories, but, I will ask this one question.
Have any of you ever witnessed strange behavior from seemingly normal people?
