Those who know me know that I’m a big girl. I look “healthy plus.” LOL! However, this episode surprised me. There are only 4 times in my life where I have been stunned stupid. This is the fifth.
I am fortunate to have so many people who care about me. Even the ladies who work next door to my office often check on me since a scary situation happened a few years ago here. One of those ladies actually stopped me when I was walking to my car. Here’s the convo:
Lady: Hey Ceej, how are you?
Me: I’m alright, how are you?
Lady: I’m fine, but I have a personal question to ask you.
Me: Ask away.
Lady: (moves closer as if she has a secret) I’m really concerned about you. Are you on drugs?
Me: (stunned stupid) WHAT?!?!?!
Lady: (puts her hand on my arm) Please don’t take that the wrong way. I’m really concerned.
Me: (still stunned) I don’t do drugs. I can’t, for many reasons. But um….do I really look like I’m on drugs?
Lady: You’ve lost weight and, well, you look strung out. Your clothes are baggy and you keep looking sicker and sicker.
Me: Oh. I have been sick. But I promise, I don’t do drugs. My family and friends deserve better than that.
Lady: Okay honey. We care about you and want to make sure you’re okay.
Me: Thank you so much!
I never thought someone would think that I’m on drugs! I think I need to start wearing makeup. Or a mask. LOL!
<Sigh> My life is never boring.
