I think I was suspected of nefarious doings in the Walgreens this afternoon, but I got away scot free. (What does that mean anyway – are Scot’s naturally free?) I do believe my penguin boggan was both the source of the suspicion and the dismissal of it. After all, what forty-something woman in a penguin toboggan would actually be UP to something?
I should have known I was in trouble when I noted that the store has giant tilted mirrors along the back wall so that the employees can keep an eye on customers. Nevertheless I was pleased no one was in my aisle, so I quickly placed the poem & took the pictures.
Then I nonchalantly rounded the corner & two men in suits were heading toward me. “Can we help you find anything ma’am?” “No, I’m fine.” “Well, we like your hat.” The nerve! They thought I was suspicious until they got a good look at me. I’m insulted! Doesn’t this face look like it could be up to no good?
Oh well, at least I’ve placed another poem in a shop. I just hope they enjoyed it!
I guess you could be
A long suffering guy
For his lady
But more than likely
You're a woman
And it's either this
Or a machete
