Close encounter...of the opposite sex kind
      08/11/07 06:46 PM

I had to share this, because something happened today that gave me a little hope back, even if I am still kicking myself over it now!

I was shopping today at Walmart and I was headed into the automotive section to pick up an oil filter and oil, so my oldest son could change the oil in my car. As I turned down the aisle towards the oil, I spotted a really cute man, about my age. He looked up at me and I looked at him and as I got closer, I realized I had no idea how to find the right filter or oil. Seeing as he was there, I saw a perfect opportunity to speak to him. I stopped and asked him if he knew how to tell which filters went with each make/model of cars. He pointed in the direction of a computer and said I could look it up there or in the book by it. So, I thanked him and walked up to the computer.

I started trying to use the computer, in which none of the information went any earlier than 2001, so I picked up the book sitting there and tried looking it up there too. As I was doing that, he came up behind me and asked if I needed any help, because I was looking in the spark plug book. I laughed and said that I had no idea what I was doing, as it was painfully obvious. He laughed and picked up the right book. I told him that my being in the automotive section, trying to pick out an oil filter was like probably him being in the makeup aisle, trying to pick out makeup. He laughed and said "You never know, I might be very good at picking out makeup!" We both laughed.

He proceeded to walk over with me to the oil and help me get that too. He was very cute, funny and we just seemed to hit it off, in those few short minutes. Right then and there, I wish I'd said "Hi! I'm Lori, it's nice to meet you..." But, dumb me, I didn't even think of that until we'd gone out separate ways. He had no wedding band on and he was pushing a cart, so he seemed to be there alone. I am just kicking myself now!!!! I feel I at least had an opportunity to do something, be a little bold and I let it walk away. But, the lesson I learned today, if it should ever happen again, is be prepared! Next time I won't let that happen again!

Moral of the story... Women, go hang out in Walmart, in the automotive section and ask for help from all the men that come down the aisle. Men, be there ready to assist. This seems to be the male territory and I honestly needed the help.
