Rather Unobservant

Disclaimer: this post could be considered slightly inappropriate. Anyone who knows me well won’t be surprised, but just want to be clear.

Surprisingly, one of the things I like about working is the commute. After the slight monotony of the highway, I enjoy looking at the businesses and people on the surface street that takes me to the office. Although I’m driving 35 mph (ok 40), I’ve taken passing notice of a store window that displays lingerie. The display changes periodically so it has managed to keep my attention.  Numerous times, I’ve thought to myself, “Oh, that’s cute” or “Maybe I should stop in sometime”.

After I don’t know how many months of driving to work, I finally looked higher than street level. Imagine my surprise when I realized that I’ve been window shopping at ‘Fantasy For Adults Only’. I immediately began to laugh hysterically as I imagined the scene of a middle aged, suburban woman parking her minivan in front of the store hoping to beat the morning rush. Then I laughed even more as I pictured my shocked face after entering the store and finally realizing where I was.

Ah…it’s the little things like this that keep me smiling.

  1. This is my favorite post of all because I can totally picture you doing this although I would have loved it even more if you had gone in and found out. You are hilarious for sure.

  2. Ummm so — if I’ve actually gone into these stores to do real shopping would you think less of me? Or worse because I wasn’t embarrassed as a middle-aged mom to be there? Yeah anyhow, that’s just me. Ummm who reads this blog?
