Dear High School Kid in the Drugstore,

Thank you so much for complimenting me yesterday when my flu-ridden self came in to buy a thermometer.  I was truly feeling like a pile of poop, and you in your high school ways mumbled something as I fumbled with the pin pad.  You remember.  You mumbled, and I said, "I'm sorry?"  To which you responded by mumbling more.  And so I said, "I'm sorry, do I WHAT?"  Finally, after one more mumble, I realized you were asking me if I went to your high school.


I said "NO, I sure don't."  Then I sort of giggled.  You looked at me kind of funny and I said, "I have been out of high school for 7 years."

You should have seen the look on your face!

Since I had a crisis last week when I turned 25, I am so thankful for your mistake.  It made me feel good.  My Darling Dearest even laughed when I came home and told him about it.  He knew it made me feel good inside.

So, thank you, dear high school kid in the drugstore.

Love, Me
