My Butcher

So yesterday I went to the grocery store like a good little wife. Dave's birthday is tomorrow so I thought I would make him crab legs....his favorite. I noticed in the ad that they were on sale too. So, I am at the grocery store looking for the crab legs and I can't find them. I was right by the butcher window so I stood there until one of the butcher's opened the window. I told him I couldn't find the crab legs and he said he would come out and show me. So he comes out and shows me just as I finally notice them for myself. Anyway, done right? Get the legs and walk away..... Well apparently this butcher had 1 more thing to say. He says to me "Ummm, I have seen you in the grocery store before and I just had to tell you that you couldn't be more beautiful." I kindly responded, "thank-you" and then fled the scene. SO WEIRD!! He was like middle-aged and apparently not shy. Did I mention that I hadn't showered yet? Was wearing a Special Olympics T-Shirt? and had little-to-no make-up on? With my hair slicked back in a pony tail? I was lookin HOT! Figures, I tend to attract the winners....a whistle from a construction worker every now and then or an uncomfortable compliment from my local butcher. Why can't a decent looking guy say something like that? Dave says because decent guys aren't randomly weird like that. He is probably right. Anyway....weird, huh? Guess I still got it!!

You're not the only one -- the butcher here always tells me how wonderful my "New York Strip" looks. How weird is that?

Just so you know, that other comment under my name was from Bryce.

But really, can you blame the butcher for knowing a great piece of meat when he sees it? I would have ran like the Dickens, too even though you should be flattered!

Dave, watch yourself . . . those butchers are very aggressive!
