I get to see some of the most random and ridiculous things. While grateful it does, NotSoSweetPea and I aren’t entirely sure how it happens. We’re thinking the Universe rewards me for not so awesome things with moments of “what the what just happened here?” laughs.
I think it also helps that I generally pay attention to the world around me. You can’t see stuff if you’re not paying attention.
I was at a Walmart in a smaller town early afternoon on a Sunday, picking up some craft paint and snacks for a project. The paint was for the project, the snacks were for me while I worked on the project. I walked out of the store behind the cart guy who was walking next to a mom who was more well put together than you usually see out that way with a big and blinged wedding ring set. They seemed to be chatting.
Shrug. I didn’t think anything of that, this was one of the more rural area stores and you ALWAYS see someone you know there.
When I got in my car, I realized the woman was parked right near me. As I got settled, had a few sips of coffee, and replied to a few emails and texts, I noticed he was helping her put her bags/boxes in the car. Okay, interesting but didn’t think too much of it.
What caught my attention was how when he shut her trunk, they got closer and furtively looked around the parking lot before they started making out/sucking face.
I sent a texts to a few girlfriends to see if they had thoughts on what I just saw and got several fantastic replies. Clearly, I was witness to an affair taking place in the Walmart parking lot.
Who knew? Walmart parking lot is the place to make out on a Sunday afternoon. Maybe she’s got a thing for safety vests? Who knows.
I kinda want to go back on a Sunday afternoon to see if I run into them again.
