So many women talk about strange men asking them out or asking them for their phone number when they are out and about. I remember being at the video rental store when I was in high school and the guy behind the counter asked my sister for her phone number. For the record, that has never happened to me. I thought it did once…but it didn’t.
After my husband graduated college, we moved to a city in Iowa. We had only been there a few weeks when my parents came to visit. While my husband was at work, I took my parents antique shopping. We were in a quaint little shop when a very nice looking man came up and started talking to me. I thought it odd that he was so friendly. I thought it so odd that I was uncomfortable and just answered him back with short aloof responses. I was a married woman, after all! I don’t know if he noticed my rudeness or not, but he then began talking to my parents. In the course of the conversation, I realized he was from the church that my husband and I had been going to. I just didn’t recognize him! I was so embarrassed! I never could look him in the eye after that!
