I see him out of my peripheral turning towards me. Can I ask you a question. I immediately assume he wants some help with picking out the best product to help curls stay bouncy and frizz free. Even though I didn’t bother to do my hair today, I’m sure it’s obvious that most of the time I know what I’m doing with this mop of mine. Sure, I say, flashing a friendly smile and what I hope comes off as a friendly attitude. Do you think it’s better to put cologne behind your ear or on your collarbone. Errr…Ughh…Hmmm…Ehhh. What??!! Ok, not the question I was expecting. But I try to keep my usually expressive face neutral and answer like it’s perfectly normal to ask such a question to a stranger in the middle of Target. I think behind the ear is best. Yea, I think I heard something like that before. Or whatever. I just am giving an answer for answers sake, really. Well what if your girlfriend likes to kiss you there? Seriously? Seriously! Well I guess she just gets a taste of your cologne in her mouth then. But I’m pretty sure that’s the best spot…something about body heat I believe. He stares at me for like a fraction of a second too long, just so it gets uncomfortable. Ok, thanks. And then he turns and goes back to looking at shampoos.
Am I the only one who finds that a bit odd?!
