Today, Scott is in Chicago where my penpal B lives. He's there with his Dad, on what has become an annual tradition: visit one of the original six hockey teams each year. They've already done Boston, last year I (along with Scott's mom) joined them in NYC, and this year is Chi-town. If I had gotten my ass in gear, I would be there too. But I didn't, so I'm not.
Good news is they are back Sunday, so only 2 sleeps without Scott. I, not unlike a lot of other BLMs, am paranoid that something could happen to him while he's away. It won't, but I'll still be nervous until he's back.
Anyway, I decided I should accomplish something not including caulking, grout, or paint today. I needed to pick up a few things at Shopper's Drug Mart (including a ticket for the $43 million dollar lotto draw tonight... 'cause my luck has been amazing lately, oh wait...).
I needed a new mascara since my current one is getting kind of yuck, and I was approached by the lady who services the cosmetic's department. She happened to be pushing a new product line which increases the lash growth, darkness and thickness. Kinda like that Latisse stuff Brooke Shield endorses... I actually had a friend who uses a similar product from Sephora (a liquid you apply to the lash line), and it really works... So knowing a little about the product, I told her I couldn't use it because pregnant women can't use it (as per my friend). As soon as I said it, I knew her next question would be whether I am pregnant. I responded with, "no, I'm not pregnant. But I will be soon, so I can't use it". I know this is an unusual statement, so she kind of looked at me like, "wtf?". I just smiled and put my usual mascara in my basket, thanked her for her help, and continued to another aisle to get some more stuff.
Crisis averted, I'm thinking I'm good, right?
Nope. She follows me, and continues to tell me about a friend of hers who is pregnant.
Her: Do you have kids?
Me: I did, I have a son. But he died just after he was born.
Me & Her: :|
Her: I have a friend. Similar thing happened to her. She now has twins.
Me: :| That's what I'm hoping for. I'm hoping for 2 babies. Then 2 more.
Me: :( ... then :'(
Her: I'm sorry to make you cry.
Me: It's obviously not your fault. Hearing about your friend, that gives me hope, so thank you.
Her: :) Good luck.
Me: :'( & :)
I gather my things quickly, pay and leave.
The end. Seriously. Come on lotto ticket... And Sunday when Scott will be home again.
