You know you're looking rough when...

You know you're looking rough when at 7 pm, whilst walking the dog along a road in a fairly well-to-do neighborhood, a nice lady in a white Escalade stops her vehicle to ask you, "Are you OK? Do you need some help?"

"Do I look like I need help?"

Granted, it was dark, it was raining and I neglected to wash my hair today. But seriously? Is a girl in jeans and a ski jacket, holding an umbrella and walking her dog that unusual?

I'm still trying to decide whether I should be thankful she cared enough to stop or insulted that I looked so distressed as to warrant the pity.

Sorry Lauren! But that sure is amusing...

It's comforting to me to think that people out there still care enough about others to stop if they think someone might need help. You know in direct opposition to those acquaintances that see us on the side of the road an don't even pull over to see if you're alright.

That is hillarious, sounds like something that would happen to me. Clerks ask me that more than they should, when I'm walking down the isles of the grocery store. I think I look very focused and more intense than most people do when I grocery shop. Comparison shopping takes concentration. ;) Love ya,
