3 little pigs


(wall piece by Gary Rith)
So I am down at the grocery store and next to the relish and mustard bump into a cart and the lady looks familiar, and then there is a vague glance and hello.
Over by the checkouts it hits me, and here she comes again, getting into line behind me and I say "hey, 3 little pigs, right????" and she's like "Yeah!" and I say "I always bump into familiar people and wonder where I saw them, but you shopped at my open house" and she's like "yeah! the 3 little pigs are for my daughter's birthday!" and of course I have no idea who she is and I don't know if she remembers my name, but I remember her purchase....

Imagine the look on that lady's face if you made that statement to her and she wasn't the one who actually bought them! lol!
