Starting this blog has brought back a few memories of situations proving my hub's diagnosis of "distraction". Two in particular still bring a chuckle. I had someone stay with mom so we could get out of the house for a little while, and we needed to stop at our car dealership. As we were driving, I was pensively looking out my side window and very quiet. Hub gets out and heads to the service department door and I got out and went into the front to look at all the new vehicles, just for something to do. I was looking at a white diamond Cadillac Escalade and admiring the paint, (no, I don't and won't own an Escalade!) then on to a few Jeeps, telling the salesman that I was just waiting for my hub. I did notice that all the salespeople were out on the floor and watching me. I mean really keeping an eye on me and I was getting uncomfortable. What was it? Did I look that confused and depressed that they were concerned? Were my pants split? Hmm. Well, I left and went back to our car, staring out my window again. My hub returned and knowing I needed quiet time, just started driving me around for a ride on a beautiful sunny day. After a while, we started talking and as I was getting choked up, I turned my head from my window view to look at him. He started laughing harder than he had in a while. I was stunned. He then told me to pull down the visor mirror and take a look. The tears started flowing - from laughter! I hadn't laughed that hard in years. Just to show you how out of it I was, (my husband said I was toast), unaware of something that should have been obvious, these were on my face.......
