Everyday we run into people that lighten up our lives a little and he is one of those.
Whenever I go to Dillions he seems to be there cheerfully sacking groceries and taking the carts out to our cars, unloading the sacks all the while talking away about something. He seems to have an ongoing conversation about something every time and doesn't let the fact he isn't always talking to the same people cause him to stop talking or change the subject. So by the time he got to me I am in the 'middle' of his conversation... I just go with the flow. Today he was actually at another check out counter talking away about tattoos which I vaguely overheard, then ended up over by me to take my cart out.
He said he wanted to get a bulldog taboo on his chest but it was going to cost 130 dollars and then started figuring out loud how much money a tattoo artist could make... Even when we got separated in the parking lot between cars he didn't stop talking...lol. I would say something once in awhile like 'that is outrageous' on the prices...and 'gee I oughta look into doing that for a living'... And my last comment...'probably not too many people are getting tattoos right now...no one can afford them'. He didn't seem to notice that last comment as he was still figuring out the take home pay on doing five tattoos...lol.
I image as soon as he got back in the store he started where he left off with me to whoever was handy.
I just like him, I think he is neat. He has been there for years too and I am sure everyone is used to him staying on track with his conversations as he moves from one check out stand to another, taking people out and then coming back in...I doubt he ever misses a beat.
Just one of those rambling posts today...
