Random thoughts during a morning mall visit

4 February 2010

Not only am I the lady with the squeaky brakes, I seem to also be the lady with the squeaky shoes. How embarrassing.

***********

I *think* the glasses store will be replacing my cracked lenses for free. I mean, I was ready for a fight, but she just looked at them and filled out a work ticket. When I asked, “So, you’ll be taking care of this?” she nodded her head — but I realized after I left the store that that was about the wimpiest way to ask the question.

***********

This whole “mall walking” thing that the elderly do here in Iowa still catches me off guard. And they seem so embarrassed about it, too — rarely looking you in the eye as they make their speedy way down the halls.

***********

Dang, having to use my old glasses for the next 5 days is going to be tricky. This prescription doesn’t do my right eye much good anymore (and that’s my worse eye).

    The main thing is that you’re getting new glasses!
    And as for the mall walkers–why not rattle their cages a bit and look each one straight in the eye as you pass them? Maybe add an appropriate salutation, too!

    Hey the squeaky, er, shoes get the grease. Too bad your specs don’t squeak.
