Not only are crazy people attracted to me, but I also claim some of the craziest mishaps.
A few months ago, I stopped in at one of my favorite stores. Shortly after walking in, I couldn't help but to notice, from the corner of my eye a woman staring at me. My initial thought was this woman has good taste; she was wearing a gorgeous pair of sling back heels and had the cutest matching handbag.
Coincidentally, we kept running into each other. Like every other aisle. When we reached the back end of the store, I felt this awkward stalkerish vibe, as though she may have been following me. So I subtly, yet sarcastically turned and asked in a playful voice "are you following me"? Her answer just about rocked my world, when she answered, Yes!
I stopped and asked if we knew each other. Her reply was, NO. She followed up by saying "you have great hair, can I touch it"? I shook my head and looked at her like she had a third eye, while asking back "YOU want to touch my hair"?
Being a Latina woman and semi superstitious I didn't want her to give me evil eye (story for another day), so I agreed and let this wacko touch my hair. Within a split second I pulled away and she launched a million questions. She asked what shampoo I used, where I got my hair did and how long it had taken to grow my hair out?
I replied with a bit of sarcasm, that I do nothing special to my hair....except beat the hell out of it with a hair dryer, flat iron and cheap hairspray. I also sarcastically said, Good hair was my gift from God...I would have preferred a fast metabolism, but no such luck.
Totally creeped out at this point, I was saved by the bell when my cellphone rang. It was the universe saving me, or so I thought. I then headed to the check out aisle, making sure Crazy was not in line; however when I looked back guess who was behind me??? Yep, Crazy was back! I quickly reached for my cellphone and made a bogus call to my own house, I know ridiculous!!
Later that evening I shared my stalker story with my girlfriends and we had a good laugh.
What would you have done???
