|The rare suit that looks OK on me.|
After an exchange of long-time-no-sees, she asks if I have something for her referring to the bagged suit I am carrying.
There is a woman customer paying up at the cash register about ten feet to my left. In the past, I would have began talking in hushed tones so that the civilian would not know what was up, but I don't care anymore what others think and the sales associate's friendly, positive manner put me in a positive mood, so I did not tone it down one decibel.
"I don't look good in suits and I am returning the one I bought yesterday."
"So why would you buy a suit if you don't look good in them," the sales associate chided me jokingly.
"I was caught up in the moment. I also bought that white cable sweater dress you have for sale. It looked gorgeous on me. So I was on a roll and decided to try my luck on a suit, too."
"That happens," the sales associate replied.
I could not help noticing that the civilian was listening intently!
And so it goes.
