an odd moment 别扭的时刻

two days ago, we went to the street market to get some yummy market food.  while there, jennifer saw a flower vase that she had been eyeing for quite some time.  we finally decided to buy it, and while i was at it, i bought some flowers to go in it.  when jennifer saw that i had bought her some flowers, she gave me a kiss. then the odd moment occurred…

i felt a tap on my shoulder and turned around to a 50-something woman  with bleached blonde hair puckered up to give me a kiss!  at first i thought i was seeing things, but then realized that i wasn’t when i heard my friend, johnathan, fall over laughing at this very awkward scene.  the lady just stood there, eyes closed and lips out, for a long time.  at the same time, i couldn’t get over the fact that she looked a lot like a monkey at that moment, and i had no idea what to do.  i’m really glad i had friends with me to witness it, because there was no way i could have described it to anybody.

the final decision was made that we should just say “bye bye” and walk away.  we laughed about it the entire walk home.

  1. Oh life on the East side. I miss it! I miss the randomness! I’m really glad Johnathan was there to witness it though. What a great story!

  2. I would have loved to see the look on Jarod’s face! You never know what’s gonna happen next here. Too funny!
