I won't lie...

Today, I got my hair done. At 2pm, I was done...but hungry. So I went next door to La Salsa. I was going to get it to go, but forgot I had my book (Eat Pray Love) in my purse, so I wanted to take a few moments to sit, read, and eat. It just so happened I sat next to two guys who were having a great discussion about how this (extremely skinny) man found size 44 pants in his drawer.

Oh man. My ears perked up. I needed to hear this story. So, like any good voyeur would do...I kept my book up in that "I'm totally into this book" position and pretended to read, while I listened to this fascinating tale.

Only thing is...I couldn't hear the rest. Something about the housecleaner. But were they the housecleaners? Or were they somebody else's that the housecleaner put back in the drawer????!!!! AAGH. I will never know. I was half tempted to turn around and ask. But oh well....I guess that's what I get.

Back to my book...

Brandon is always getting onto me for doing that....we are out and about and he will ask me if I heard him and I have to say "No, I am listening to the people over much more interesting."...poor guy.

OK, this must be a girl thing cuz I do the same thing and it makes Gus mad. Have heard some interesting stories along the way...but yes, frustrating when you can't hear the ending.

I LOVE "Choose Your own Adventure Eavesdropper Stories!!! I think the guy probably shop lifted the pants while walking in his sleep.

See, what happened was, he broke into a Big and Tall store and stole the size 44s, then hid them in his drawer to give to his husky Uncle Yeardley for his graduation from night school.
