I love purses a lot…..a whole lot! I have purses of every shape, size, color and price range so I really didn’t need a new purse but I wanted a new purse. The reason I like purses so much is because they are the one thing that you can buy that doesn’t make your butt look big. As a matter of a fact if you get a really big purse it can actually make your butt look smaller!
Anyway, I went shopping the other day and I found the purse of my dreams. (Maybe it wasn’t really the purse of my dreams but that is what I told Devin so he would know how much I wanted it). I didn’t buy it that day but I went back a few days later and it was still there! I take that as a sign from God that I am supposed to get it :-). I quickly grabbed the purse and headed for the register. I was like a kid with a brand new toy. As I was checking out, I started a conversation with the cashier. She told me she liked my nails and I told her I like her hair, you know, girl talk. After I had paid for the purse I thought, I really want to use my new purse today so I said to the cashier, “do you have some scissors that I can use?” “Sure” she said, and she handed me a pair. I very discreetly slipped the scissors into my bag and snipped off the tags so that when I got in my car I could transfer all of my belongings in to my new purse.When I was finished I quietly handed them back to the cashier and said, “thank you”. Just as I was about to grab my bag and leave, this lady in the line next to me said, “you might be a red neck if you wear, out of the store, what you just bought.”
What did she just say?
Did she just call me a red neck?
Did I hear her correctly? She don’t know she is fixin’ to draw back a nub!!!!
This felt like a scene right out of Sweet Home Alabama! One million things ran through my mind. So many things I wanted to say. I wanted to say, “Sugar, if I was a red neck you would be pickin’ yourself up off the floor ’bout right now!” But I didn’t, I just smiled like a true southern lady, turned around on my high heel and thought, Bless her heart……she dont know.
