On Being Honest

April 7, 2012 Fun 3 Comments

I made my weekly trip to Trader Joe’s this week and refilled on pretty much everything. I got to the checkout and the nice older gentleman checking me out saw the wine in my cart and asked me if I am 21 years old.

“No, I’m not. I’m 37.”

It took him about 45 seconds (while scanning groceries, mind you) to process my response and ask, “Wait. Did you just tell me your real age?” I admitted that I had, and he stopped what he was doing for a second to actually look at me.

“Well, I never would have guessed. You certainly don’t look 37.”┬áHonestly, I don’t know what he meant by that… but I took it as a compliment.

He continued scanning my groceries, which included a Milk Chocolate Bunny and Chocolate/Peanut Butter Eggs (Happy Easter, Greg!). He then asked, “Oh, do you have kids?” And I replied, “Hell no! Why do you think I look so young?”

He burst out laughing as I continued bagging my loot.
