Sunday

Vicarious Sex Appeal...


I took in a movie a couple of Sundays ago. I went to a grocery store near the theater after the movie so that I could go home and lounge the rest of my Sunday away. Normally I would not have gone to that grocery store. However, like many detours in Chatón’s World, this detour resulted in a story…

I did my shopping and once again underestimated what I needed. So, as I approached the cashier, I struggled with my head down lamenting that I was carrying an overstuffed basket instead of gracefully pushing a cart. Then, I hear, “Your shoes are so sexy!” Instantly, I raise my head to see who noticed my shoes. I’ve always liked the shoes because they’re cute and comfy. But who knew that they were sexy?!

After raising my head I saw the most angel faced kid replete with braces and a smile ogling my shoes.

When I met his gaze he became embarrassed. He said, “I don’t even know if I’m allowed to say that at work!” Instead of lecturing him about appropriate workplace conduct, I just smiled. Then I thought, perhaps if he thinks the shoes are sexy maybe he thinks that I’m sexy?!

Then I looked at him again and snapped back to reality. He’s so young I’d go to jail… Still, I did bounce out of that store with an extra pep in my step. It’s always nice to get noticed, even if it is just for the shoes!
