I confess. I’m the owner of one superpower. I’ve been gifted with the extra-human strength of keen peripheral vision. Surely nothing to build a Hollywood blockbuster script upon, but at times this widened field of vision has it’s advantages. Interestingly enough… Case & point:
While out & about this evening, moonlighting at the grocery store, I slowly became incrementally cognizant of several inquisitively odd looks from surrounding strangers.
Based upon the gawking & uncomfortable attention being received, I was initially very concerned that I forgot to wear pants in public. This probably shouldn’t have been my initial mental reaction… but, that’s what happened. After a quick chug of coffee, brief visual reassessment of my surroundings (produce-deli) & self-administered TSA-style pat-down, confirming I was dressed in semi-respectable condition… I realized my iPod headphones were tuned at peak volume & was not only rocking several overtly sweet dance moves through the grocery isles, but potentially guilty of singing far above socially acceptable standard.
What can I say?! “The Power of Love,” by Huey Lewis & The News speaks to my inner rockstar.
So, let me just say this…. You’re welcome, Strangers. Consider that an appetizer. There’s a whole lot more where that came from! See y’all next week when my grocery supply runs dry.
