My story of the day.....

Yes, I am odd. I have some very strange things that annoy me. One of them is CROWDS! You can ask any of my close friends, but I can't stand to be somewhere, and have no breathing room. I think I am a little claustrophobic! I have even been known to leave certain eating establishments because it was so jammed pack with people!!!! Well today, Noah and I went to the mall to do even more Christmas shopping ( it never ends). We were at 'Limited' and he told me he was hungry and wanted some chicken nuggets. Well anything for my sweetie!!! So it is only about 10:30am, and the food court was sparse and just the way I like it!!!! I got some Chik-fil-a and we went to a back corner to sit. Seriously, there was probably about FIVE people in the huge court area!!! We are sitting there eating, chatting, and minding our business when this older couple starts walking towards us and they chose the table RIGHT next to us. One of them must have had a hearing problem because they were doing sign language. They didn't just sit down, no they moved chairs back and forth several times, making that loud scraping noise (cringe). Noah just stared. They didn't even have any food. They just sat there making very big sign language gestures and not once did they look at us. I just found it very odd and couldn't help but think to myself that " this kind of thing only happens to me". I mean, there was empty space ALL over the food court. Why come sit on top of me and my son? I could understand if the place was crowded with people, but it wasn't! Now before anyone tells me that I need to loosen up, let me just say that it was just frustrating because I purposely sat in the back so I could be invisible. Do I have a shining light on my shirt or something that draws people over? I really do not think so! Do you think God is trying to teach me something in the area of flexibility? Quite possible!!!! Ok, rant over! ;)

I understand! I'm the same way at movie theaters....I prefer people to not sit right beside me (especially if it's not crowded)....just too close!
