Did ya ever......

............go to a local store and see someone you sure you knew? I did, today! Was positive that it was the mom of my daughters friend, Sherry, who was on the same high school swim team. I said "Hi, how are you?" She smiled back and said "fine, and you?" I told her I was fine also, and asked her how her kids were. She looked at me with a puzzled look on her face and said..."do I know you?" I then asked her if her name was Pat? She gave me a big smile which led me to believe that she had not recognized me at first. She then extended her hand to shake hands with me and said....with a big smile on her face...."My name is Dot and it's always nice to meet new people!"


I should have been embarrassed but I wasn't! I smiled back and mumbled something about when I got really old and had Alzheimer's I would meet new friends every day and started to walk away when she touched my arm and reassured me that it was fine and that she does the same thing sometimes. We laughed, chatted a few more minutes about being moms and grandmas and growing old, and went on our separate ways. Talk about a DUNCE!!!!

I've been accused of having never met a stranger. Now you can join the club.

I have seen someone in a crowd before and thought they were someone else. You shouldn't be embarrassed. For a while, I had several people ask me if I were a police officer. I found that odd and finally asked the next person who asked me that why they asked. He said that I looked like a local officer. Hugs!
