Why do I always get the Wierdos???

Here are a couple of stories to let Katie know that she isn't the only one who gets wierdos at Wal-Mart...

The other day I was walking around Wal-Mart with just Trevor in the cart. A man dressed in just a grubby sweatshirt and jeans with a baseball cap on stopped me and asked me if he could ask me a question. I said "Sure". He said: "I hope you don't think this is wierd or anything but I saw you and I just thought you were so beautiful and I was wondering if you would let me take you out sometime." ...What the HEAK?! This might have been flattering if it weren't for the fact that I had Trevor in the cart and my wedding ring was clearly in view since I had my hands on the cart. Do I look like the type of person that would do something like that?! I was actually pretty offended. I said "Sorry, I'm happily married", held up my ring finger and walked away...what a sleeze!

Another story...

A couple weeks ago an older man randomly stopped me in Wal-Mart and said "Hey, do your kids eat a lot of cereal?" I said "Not really." He leans in closer as if to tell me his fasinating conspiracy theory and then says in a hushed voice: "Well, you better stock up because the prices are gonna jump sky high because of the flooding in Iowa and the wheat shortage!" I said "Oh...thanks." and walked quickly away. I realize that he might be correct on the smallest level but it was hillarious because he was acting like the world was coming to an end and we all needed to be prepared.

Why do I always get the wierdos??? It's like I have a neon sign stamped on my forehead that pulls these types of people to me!
