Wow. I have to say, the response to my X-Men post was amazing! I had no idea so many of you were into comics. No wonder I like y'all so much :D If that's the case, I'm considering a weekly comic post. One where I spotlight a superhero and tie it into writing. Sound good? If not, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Second, I'm feeling really lousy right now because I'm a thief. The hubs bought me a gift card for a manicure for Mother's Day. Today I went to the salon to redeem the card. When I got there, I picked out a bottle of black nail polish (I always pick black - hee) and brought it to the woman. She set it down next to a bunch of other colors, later picking it up and asking, "This your color?"
I said, "Yes," because it was the color I picked out.
Later, when my nails were done drying, I was trying to get my keys out of my purse without sticking my hands in (my nails were still wet) when one of the guys asks if he can help me. I say, "sure". But before I hand over my purse, I notice that the black nail polish was inside of it. The girl must have put it in there thinking that I brought it from home when I said it was mine.
Anyway, I panicked. The right thing to do would have been to say, "Oops, looks like we had a miscommunication." But I freaked, thinking the guy would assume that I stole the polish and only fessed to it because he was going to root inside my purse. So I tilted my purse at a funky angle which buried the polish beneath all the junk I keep inside it, and miraculously, positioning my keys right on top.
Now, I'm totally going to bring the polish back later today - then they have to realize it was an accident - I'm hoping - but I can't help but feel like a jerk.
So, to make myself feel better, I finally framed and put out my James Marster's photo. Ahhhh, the swoonage is working all ready.
I'm also wondering - does this kind of thing only happen to me? Has anyone else ever committed a crime unintended?
Anyway, whether you're a hero or a super-villian, have a great Memorial Day Weekend!!!
