Random strangers

 How often do you interact with a complete stranger at a store?  I am not talking about a worker/cashier I'm talking about just another random shopper like yourself.
Today I was standing by my cart sipping on my drink (yes, I take in my water) while dh is picking out some steaks and this elderly man asks "can I take a hit of that" LMAO!  My face turned red...I know it did as I shook my head and said Umm no. 
LOL turns out he's a jokester and gets a kick out of people's reactions.  We had a pretty good laugh after I realized he was kidding, lol!!!  He was a friendly old guy.  I watched him talk to someone on every aisle.  Made me wonder if he's lonely though :/  I adore the elderly.

LMAO That must have been funny!! Did Ken see any of it? what did he think? I dunno about him but shawns kinda weird when it comes to men talking to me. i mean hes not jealous hes just trying to make sure they're not pulling anything. ya know what I mean?

 I usually do too ;)  There is usually someone that needs help reaching top shelves or help finding something in the store, lol.
He just really caught me off guard with that request LOL!  I don't share drinks with other people...just dh so it was really quite comical.

 He sure had fun with me though ;)

LOL usually it's the women that won't hush up.  Have you always been like that?  I think I got it from my mama, Hahaha!
He came up right towards the end and said he was wondering why I was blushing so badly, lmao!  Dh even jokingly grabbed something from his cart on another aisle ;)  If he had been a much younger dude than I'm sure dh wouldn't be pleased, hehe!  I totally know what you mean though.

 I guess it depends, if someone seems to be debating a product I know about I've been known to offer an opinion...lol

More often though the little ones catch someones attention and that's an attention grabber. The best moments ever are when I have all the kids with me and you can see the quick "kid count" that people do lmbo

 That's awfully nice of you ;)  Ever been snubbed for giving your advice?
Oh lol I bet ;)  If I stare then just know it's from admiration for being able to care for so many ;)
