Um...WOW.

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.
