Today I went out amongst the human population. As discussed before, after ten years of working from home I’m basically feral. Even when I dealt with people on a daily basis outside my home I was super awkward. Also, at this point in my hair experiment I look like a greying 6’5″ Monchichi.
The reason for today’s outside adventure was the annual gathering of the supplies it takes to throw a successful Very St. Martin Christmas, plus the things I’ll need for Christmas Brunch at Sister #2’s and Breakfast for Dinner Dirty Santa. Mostly this included various bread products and $30 worth of candy. And Potato Oles, because I was hungry.
At Target I was helped by a beautiful woman whose makeup game was on point. She had on lovely plum lipstick and the most amazing sparkly blue eye shadow I ever saw. As she handed me my bags I did the whole “Don’t say it. Don’t say it. Don’t say it.” thing. Then I said it.
“YOUR EYESHADOW IS AMAZING!” I said with the kind of exuberance that could have only been frightening coming from a 77-inch tall Monchichi.
She blinked at me twice, then smiled. “Thank you. I appreciate that.”
