Before you think I’m writing about child discipline, I am not. This is a little situation that happened to me about 5 minutes ago in my “haven”.
I was sitting in a coffeeshop enjoying some time sans Bud to write and work on my book. I’m sitting next to this cute, young college girl who is working on some really important
homework Facebook. This man has come up to talk to her before but she keeps brushing him off (in a completely polite way) but he’s persistent in talking to her about not getting caught in the rain…. I’m serious.
Anyway, he comes up again and notices I have taken residence at the table next to her but I have my head down trying to get in to that writer’s world of focus that I keep hearing about…. I’m still searching by the way. And then this little magical interaction happens:
Man: “Do you go to college too?”
I look up at him…
Man: “Oh NO! You don’t! You’re too old.”
Fresh-faced Polyanna next to me: “That wasn’t very nice.”
Meanwhile, if anyone needs me, I’ll be googling Botox injections and looking for the best white wine spritzer recipes.
