I've always loved going to the store at night. Especially now that I have kids, there is no disagreements about sugary cereal and the like. One downfall: scary people. The minute I rolled into the store hear, "do I know you from somewhere?" Maybe I'm too nice. I should have just said no and rolled away. 5 minutes later he is telling me about his ex-girlfriend. After my shopping, he is at the checkout. NOT checking out, BTW. He's just standing there watching everyone checkout. Thankfully the checkout guy notices that I'm uneasy and has someone walk out with me.
Not in the clear yet, as scary dude is standing there at his bike; I decide to not wait, but to high tail it out of there. As I turn onto the main road, he starts his bike towards me! Aaaah!! I speed, I mean SPEED down the street to make it safely home. I live very close to the store, but there is enough turns that I could definitely lose someone if I had to. This may turn into an interesting blog. Did you know this has happened to me before? Seriously, scary guys coming after me: at a QT while in college and at my apartment (while riding my bike) when I was in grade school. God has protected me thus far, and don't think He'll stop now. I still sit here though, uneasy, thinking what if this guy knows where I live? Now that I have kids, I have more irrational fear. I think of my defense: this guy has a bike, I have a minivan and a powerful $26k wheelchair. He has no chance!
There is so much more going on right now that I can't tell as of yet, so I will leave you hangin' with that!
