Slice of Life

1. Well, this one is disturbing. I was at the local Walmart doing what one does – spending money on things you were so sure you hadn’t needed before you walked through those doors. I was browsing the lingerie section (such as it is in Walmart) and happened upon a mother and son in the same department. I would say the son was about 40, his mom around 65. My boys would rather stand in the middle of traffic than go with me into the ladies underwear section. Oh the horror! But this son, in the midst of the ladies dept, calls out “Hey, Ma, they have this Triumph bra in a DD. Should fit you nicely”. I think I threw up a little in my mouth. Just too…….weird. Mind you after reading this article, nothing surprises me any more.

2. I had to be on the bus this morning to go to a meeting. Usually the bus drivers are surly and unresponsive here – well that has been my experience anyway. The 535 bus driver this morning was the opposite. Every person that got on to ride his bus was given a cheery Bonjour! or Good Morning. And then a Merci or Thank You once they paid their fare. He greeted everyone enthusiastically. It totally makes a difference to the morning commute. I am sure people are stressed when they get on the bus – having the driver be welcoming helps. I thanked him as I got off the bus, -he smiled, and wished me a good day!

Blue Moon…….

Ok, I know I am going to sound like an old dried up prude here, but I have to get this out of my system. I was in the grocery store on Friday doing my Shabbat shopping, and there was this young lad, 20 maybe, creating an organized pile of sacks of potatoes. As I passed he bent down to pick up a sack.  His pants were hanging halfway down his thighs, exposing his grey Calvin Klein’s for all to see. I guess I should be thankful that he was wearing underwear? But what was the point of wearing pants, when they covered nothing? He was even wearing a belt on his pants, but obviously a severely defective one. He isn’t the first young dude I have seen with this affliction, but each time I have to fight the terrible temptation of just yanking oh so very gently on the pants so that they puddle to the floor. After all they are only kept up by the sheer force of willpower. There is new legislation in a city in America, I forget which, which fines you $20 if you show 3 inches of skin or underwear where your pants should be. I wonder if they use this money to fix the sidewalk cracks 😉


So people, I ask you to join me, next time you see the underwear moon, yank it just a little, just for me…please?
