That Was...Interesting.

Just got back from taking the kids to the mall.  Needed a few groceries, and hit the day olds.

After shopping, I took them to McDs for a treat.

The guy serving me kept looking at me oddly.

Later, he brought over a chocolate milk I'd forgotten.  I walked over to meet him, and he said, "You are a very s$xy woman."

I just sort of stared at him, and finally mumbled, "Thank you."

I'm a mom.  Short, pudgy.  Wearing an old shapeless sweater and fleecy jog pants.  Not to mention the whole RSD bit.

I didn't (and still don't) know if I should be flattered or creeped out.  He just had this weird sort of intensity to him.  I hurried the kids along with their snack and left post haste.

I haven't had a total stranger pay me a compliment in...decades?  Probably.  And certainly not that boldly, ever.

Maybe I just need Wolf to get better with his compliments, or threaten to run away with the McDs guy.

It's the whole Desperate Housewives/Hott Moms Myth thing. They are deceived into thinking we are all terribly needy and ho-t-t (pronounced in mockery Hah-tuh-tuh by moi).

Bizarro.
