Yesterday I had every intention of staying home all day but then...E ended up having half a day of school. Since we hadn't kicked it in a minute...he and I decided to go forth into the world and plot world domination.
Why world domination you ask?
Cuz his lil' cheeky azz has finally decided (after watching the NFL show) that I'm really making movies so he needed to give me all of his movie ideas that he's working on.
SIP: Seriously though...out of over 150 ideas he constantly rambled...one was really pretty good. GO E!
So we're down in Chevy Chase doing some shopping because I'm looking for a dress for this thingy and while we're down there...I remembered I wanted to go try on this shoe because it has been getting some pretty hot reviews:
I'm always looking for a lightweight shoe that is comfortable and these only weigh 12 ounces. I haven't run into them yet at my normal shopping spots so I made note that the next time I found myself near a New Balance store...I'd go have a look see and try them on.
So yesterday was that day.
It should be noted that I take my responsibility as E's Godmother very seriously. I don't allow SIP to show up and wild out and...I'm always in protective mode. Not just of his physical well-being but of what he's exposed to when he's with me.
We walk into the store, which is a shotgun style tucked down the way from Nordstrom Rack, and he's talking. I'm listening. Kinda sorta...cuz seriously? That kid can talk.
I have on cargo shorts, a t-shirt, a baseball cap and sunglasses. My wallet is in one cargo pocket and my phone and keys are in the other. I'm chilling...with my Godson. No pressure.
We walk in and we're greeted at the front door. I smile and nod still KINDA listening to E. I'm also looking around for the women's section.
It's on the back wall.
We walk to the back wall and the chick from the front door is right at my elbow.
I stand there and put my hands in my pockets.
E: GETCHO HAND OUTTA MY POCKET!
Look around for the shoe I'm looking for.
E is talking.
Chick reaches over and picks up a shoe off the wall right in front of me.
I'm listening to E.
Watching her out the side of my eye.
She "inspects" the shoe and puts it back and then starts adjusting the way some shoes are sitting on their little wall thingys.
Nobody else is in the store.
E has picked up these deodorizing balls and I'm talking to him about how he might need fifty of them.
I told E we were going to get him some of those balls so he was deciding on which color.
Chick steps closer and is RIGHT.AT.MY.ELBOW.
All this gotdamn space in this empty store and she is RIGHT.AT.MY.ELBOW.
Me: E...put it back. We're leaving. Start walking.
E looks up, puts it back and starts walking.
SIP: (really low voice) Why are you following us so closely?
Chick: Oh...I wasn't following you!
SIP: (takes DEEP breath, looks all around, looks at E) Oh really?
And then we left.
I didn't let E see any of that because I guess I don't want him to know that kinda ish can sometimes happen ya know? AND...I didn't tag her because I know he was having a good time and I didn't want to ruin it.
But baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby! I was pissed!
I was so pissed it's a good thing I had them damn sunglasses on cuz laser beams could have killed that heffRa.
This hasn't happened to me in so long so it was shocking to me because it was so blatant.
Now...here is my question for you.
My not wanting E to really get what was going on...good thing or bad thing?
