We're unpredictable people, RuthAnn, and I! :) We went to WalMart today, dressed in all our finery, just for the sake of it. We were getting some dresses out of the church attic for a girl's lock-in we're planning tomorrow, and we decided to play dress up. It was crazy fun.
I loved watching people's responses. RuthAnn and I wanted to make people smile, and it worked! Some just laughed and laughed. A few sweet old guys told us we were beautiful. One man asked us where we parked our horses. A little girl's eyes sparkled and she stared at us, making her mommy laugh. And a few just smiled and asked why on earth we were dressed that way. But the ones that amazed me the most were like our cashier. Their expression didn't change. Didn't crack a grin. You could almost read their thoughts. "Yeah, whatever. I see women out of a Dicken's novel shopping in Wal Mart on a regular basis. No biggie." (Good grief... just smile!) :)
