The Art of A Bad Pick Up

Mom and I went to the Starving Artist Sale.
One of the employees, who happened to be Ray Liotta's twin, struck up a conversation.
"This is the best part of they day. Time to pack it up and move it somewhere else."
"Oh really? Where is the next one going to be?" I said, tryig to be polite.
"I think I heard them say Murfreesboro. I used to live out there. Well, I actually lived in Nashville...with my Mother. My name is Daryll. I don't actually travel with this, but when you are divorced and the economy is this bad you do what you have to do. I just went down to the temp service and they said they had this on Sunday and I said well how hard can that be?"
His words just kept spilling out. He couldn't help himself.
He keeps stepping closer.
I keep stepping backwards.
He really wanted to shut up, but he just kept going...
"You know, I still go back and forth. I haven't decided if I really want to live here. After all, we lost 2,000 jobs this week. And I'm not really sure this is the place for me. Plus, my Mom still needs me. "

OK, since I live in Murfreesboro, it's only fair you tell me when this next sale is so that I stay away! LOL Thanks for following my blog! Your little ones are ADORABLE and I hope everyone feels better soon!

My guess is that it will be this weekend, although he did mention that he didn't travel with it... Hopefully you are in the clear! LOL
