Meanwhile at the store…
I was standing behind the chatty woman who punctuated every sentence with “Right?”
Within seconds, I was taken by the number of times she said, “Right?” Every sentence she uttered ended in “Right?” I started counting- then realized how silly that was.
The word she used to describe everything in the store was “Adorable.”
The manager of the store was staring from the next sales counter.
She stepped away from her task and walked over to the customer buying a pile of high- priced boutiquey wear.
She touched her arm and said in a stage whisper, “Darling, you really must do something
about the way you speak. Read Shakespeare. Seriously.”
The customer was taken aback and speechless.
The store manager is my hero.
