so..

I'm out this afternoon buy'en stuff... (got new p-z beige pants... kinda cut like jeans... and a long sleeve sorta shirt thing...) but while I was picking up this greating card at the Crafters Marketplace I had this encounter with a girl carrying a bag of choco almond boxes in one hand and a plastic laminated page with 8 childrens faces and bios in the other.
"Excuse me... Would you like to buy a box of chocolate almonds... for these missing children." (holding up the bio page)
"well... lets see, that would be eight boxes right? and how, if their missing, do you intend to get these boxes of almonds to them?"
"pardon?"
pause...
"Ohhhhh... no... see... The idea is for you to buy the chocolates because these kids are missing..."
"ahhh... oh. Am I somehow in favour of Missing Children by buying the chocolates?"
pause...
"No... Oh no. You see... ... ... er... ... Never mind."
(turns to other person)
"Excuse me... Would you..."


yessiree... I'm one of those pain in ass people that (like Wednesday from the Adams Family) ask the girl guide at the door... "are they made with real girl guides?
