"There's only one hard and fast rule in running: sometimes you have to run one hard and fast."

Just to balance the intellectual level of this blog, here's the dumbest thing I've done this week.

I was shopping and there was a woman near me carrying her very young son. The boy slapped her in the chest and said, "My boob!" There was a moment where she just stopped in embarassment, trying to decde whether to ignore him or scold him. So... I said, "You can DO that? You can just claim them? Dibs on the other one."

She was no longer embarassed by her son, because she was embarassed by me instead. Just paying it forward, little guy.

Man, I heard of taking candy from a baby but ... titties?

That's just low, Steve.

Plus, you let her leave the store with her vagina unclaimed?

Have you learned nothing from reading my blog?

Then did she go home with you? It's a great pick up line.

Most awesome story EVER.

I am with SU&R, that pick up line would have totally worked had she not been carting around the little Boob Claimer.

You do have a knack for saying just the right thing!

You realize this will be quite the story in the "mom group". First about the son shouting that out in the store (what is the etiquette on that one?!) and then the guy who commented.


Love it!

Just curious ... did this take place in a Wal Mart?

Beth, I've never been in a WalMart. Don't even know where one is.
