Meet....Not Your Typical Floozy!

I stopped at the grocery store on the way home from work last night. We needed a few essentials.

I am walking down the aisle with a 6 pack of beer in one hand and a bottle of wine in the other when I see them. A mother and teenage daughter walking towards me. Mother pushing the cart filled with groceries, daughter trailing a few paces behind (as teenage daughters do), frantically pulling down her T-Shirt.

Mind you, teenage daughter is a cute little blonde thing. Thin as cute little blond things are, with her hair in a pony tail.

I am, as I said, carrying the few essentials that we needed and I am wearing my black dress slacks, a knit top with 3/4 length sleeves. Said knit top has been washed a few times and it did shrink, I am also wearing my blackberry on my waist band.

Mother says to daughter, "...keep your shirt down, I don't want you walking around with your belly hanging out like some floozy."

"Sorry Mom", says cute teenage daughter.

They both glance at me as we pass...both their eyes drop to my waist area, where my belly is peeking out between my top and my slacks.

Mother frantically glances away and is now almost running down the aisle, daughter blushes and looks away and I? I burst out laughing, loudly. Good thing I had taken out my belly button ring...guess I was not your typical floozy.

I'm sure there is a lesson in here somewhere (for them) I'm just not sure if I can put my finger on it. ;)

Ha! I think the fact that your shirt had 3/4 sleeves instead of being sleeveless meant you weren't being a typical floozy!

I went to the restroom at the supermarket once and (I have no idea how) my shirt got tucked up under my bra band. I sauntered out of there with all of my side meat showing. Classy.

LOL! I love foot-in-mouth moments. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. If there's anything I can do for y'all let me know. I run an online parent support group (there's a link on my site).
Also? Yay for meeting another FL blogger! I'm on the East Coast but my brothers are over in St. Pete.

Mommylebron...I think I will be in close contact with you. We have so many daughter has her internet off right now. She is dealing with the tremendous expense of meds, Dr. visits

Thank you for stopping by.
