Famous in a small town

Ever find yourself running into Wal-Mart to grab a few things with no make-up and a ball cap on. Your walking through the aisles at a quicker than usual pace because truth be known its Sunday morning and you over slept for church. Yep, that has been me a few times!  

I find myself  trying to hurry and get the stuff and get out before the church crowd rolls in...... and right as I am strategically placing the last item on my list in the buggy, you know the case of beer I am picking up for my neighbor (wink wink) behind the feminine products I have already placed in the cart, I hear a "Hey we missed you today!" As I slink around trying to hide the cringe that just ran through my veins. I flash a big smile and pretend that I am not rearranging the tampons to hide the beer in my cart! lol Although I make eye contact and ask the standard southern girl questions, "Hey there" and I throw in a "How's your Momma and them?" their eyes have wondered to my buggy..... They look it up and down as to remember every item that is in it and have yet to hear a word of my witty banter :) Anyways, in true Sarah fashion I ask if they wanted me to grab them a case since we were on the beer ;) LOL. I get a quick no, with a frantic shaking of the head and good to see you and off they go! Southern girl 101, when in a precarious situation always advert the attention elsewhere!
