My New Best Friend Shops at Walmart

Today Paris and I did the beginning of the month 7 hour shopping trip to Walmart and Costco to get food for the next two weeks.  We were in line at the deli at Walmart when I met my new best friend.  He was a big African-American guy with shades and a cool jacket on.  He was also being helped at the deli.  He started smiling at Paris and asking how old she was.  He asked me if she was my first kid, "No, I have two other boys in school."  
"Really?" he said, "I thought you couldn't be older than 18."
"No, I'm actually 32."  
"No way, wow you are a beautiful woman."
"Thanks," I said blushing and smiling.
Then as I walked away he called out, "Stay beautiful." Just like an entry in my yearbook or something.

Needless to say this was the highlight of my day. Black guys always like me because of my big booty.  That's ok, I'll take whatever compliments I can get.

That is so funny! Black guys are always hot on my tail too! Although can't remember the last time somebody telling me I looked 18 - lucky beautiful girl!

That story made me laugh so hard! Love it!

And we totally do the Wal-mart and Sams Club 5 hour trips every 2 weeks too! But I have to go at night..because otherwise I will kill them if I have to fight them for 5 hours with up and down, in and out, smooshed bread and broken eggs, running away and hiding, listening to crying because they are "starving to death", breaking up fights, constantly asking me how many things I have left to get before I even get through the front doors, crying for french fries (there is a McDonalds in ours) and bubblegum, needing a diaper change or potty breaks... lets just say it is NOT a pretty sight! :)

isn't is funny that compliments from strange men are highlights in our lives these days. If you really had been 18 it probably would have grossed you out. I will take any compliment I can get these days. you are beatiful so he was just telling it like it is :)
