Sis, Bro-in-law and Self decided to go shopping around 7 pm or so. So I tied my hair up as neat as I could, chewed my lower lip and when I was satisfied, we drove to the supermarket to buy some stuff. We also wanted to get some Ice Cream, but the flavour we were looking for seemed to be unavailable everywhere we went. We checked out the Video store, bought some totally awesome Mangoes and finally some Chips and some Red Bull. But that's not what I'm updating my journal about. :o)
Our last stop was at the local supermarket. Soon as the car comes to a complete stop, I jump out and rush in. Ice Cream at the top of my list. I make a beeline for the Freezers and snap one open. Brain completely absorbed in the frantic search. Sis shows up in my side vision and opens up the neighbouring freezer also in a search frenzy. Here's the conversation in hind-sight:
Me: I can't find it, Surely, it can't be that they're all sold out!
She: Check the other freezer, I'll check this one, you may have missed it..
Me: This one seem's empty.. Did you find it or shall I check the one on the other side?
She: I checked it already, but go ahead.
(at this point, I move to the other side and I feel a bit confused.. Not sure why, but I do.. More on this later)
Me: Nope, Not here..
(Suddenly I notice it in a corner and the frantic search comes to an end)
Me: Ah, I found it! It was hiding in the corner.
She: (Leaning my way to check what I'd picked up) No, that's not it!
I look up confused even more, and that's when it hits me! It's a total stranger!!
I instantly ran out of words and thankfully, so did she. :) I felt so damned embarassed, it's not funny! Neither of us appologized, neither of us reacted in the least.
We quietly turned back to our business, me toward the counter, and she back to the freezers.
I've never been so embarassed in ages!
In afterthought, it really was a funny thing to happen to someone. I just wish it had'nt been me. :)
