It occurred to me this morning that some people have interesting things happen in their lives that make for interesting tales in the blogosphere. Not me. And some people have a way with words that is totally captivating. Not me either.
These thoughts jumped into my head as I was wandering around the supermarket earlier today.
Then I saw the soap powder I’d bought on one of my three trips to the supermarket in the last three days (don’t ask). It was on special and I only like to buy it when it’s on special coz you get to save like $7 or $10 when it is. These types of specials are the ones worth waiting for.
Anyway, as I passed the soap powder I thought, “That’s the soap powder I bought the other day. I’ve got some of that.”
And then I wondered what would happen if I went up to some random stranger in the supermarket and said, “See that soap powder over there? I’ve got some of that.”
What do you think they’d do? Apart from stare at me like I was a complete lunatic, and then slink away hoping I wouldn’t talk to them anymore – like the people on trains who stare intently at their books, even when they’re not reading, in the hope that the slightly crazy person won’t speak to them. Do you think they’d call the store manager and have me committed?
