#2, Libbs, and I went to Wal-Mart at around midnight a couple of nights ago for an emergency brownie run.
Libbs went to go get some deodorant while #2 searched for the brownie ingredients she needed. While kind of wandering around looking for her after I had found what I needed, I finally spotted her in the middle of one of the aisles.
I stood at the end of her aisle and did this raptor imitation I do. The raptor is a development between something from Avatar and this dinosaur thing Cray-Cray does. I don't know why I do this, but I am ashamed to say I had been doing it all weekend in Lafayette at this conference we went to. There are pictures...
It comes complete with a screeching/growling sound and body motions.
So I'm standing there at the end of the aisle in the open doing this....thing. I figured no one would see because it was about 12:30 in the morning and no one was really there.
In the corner of my eye I saw someone stop. I looked over and it's these two young guys just staring at me with these faces of confusion and shock.
Can you blame them?
I was pretending to be a raptor...
I felt my face get really hot and so I looked down in embarrassment. I told them sorry in a quiet voice -- I had no idea why I was apologizing -- and proceeded down the aisle to #2 who was killing herself laughing at this point. I literally laid on the ground in the middle of the aisle and curled up into the fetal position mourning the loss of my dignity.
I made a silent vow to myself right then that I would never leave my apartment again.
