Romance in Aisle 9

The other day I was in our local WalPuke Neighborhood Mart, walking from the back of the store to the front.  Why are the things I want always in the back?  Is this some diabolical plot to expose me to all the other products?

While walking, I got that feeling you get when someone is staring at you.  To the right up ahead was a woman checking me out.  ME!  She looked to be in her thirties and was fairly attractive.  As I approached her, I gave her a wide smile.

No reaction.

Then I thought, "Store detective."

Well, thank you Lord for even the few seconds of elation.

The only people interested in this body anymore are in the medical field.

Is this a personal comment, or a joke you found?

I've had similar situations where it is obvious that someone is following me and watching me in a store. I always make eye contact, let them know I'm on to them. Sometimes if I have a cart, I stop, unzip my purse and pretend to be looking for my shopping list or a coupon, just to make them fidget while they try to keep their eye on me. Do I really fit the demographics for a shoplifter? I didn't think I was old enough yet to start stealing batteries! (Seinfeld reference)

It happened to me the other day at WalPuke.
