* Things Are Not Always What They Seem to be

We went to Home Depot the other day, my husband pushing the cart, me trailing along slightly behind. I veered off to the side to ask at the customer service desk about an item I was looking for. My husband hadn’t noticed I wasn’t still following him and kept going, and the answer to the question I asked about was taking longer than it should have. When I finally turned around to follow my husband he was long gone.
I started walking in the direction he was last going, and looking down each aisle as I went.  I passed two women laughing about something. Not finding my husband down the aisles I turned around and headed back the way I had come. The two women were still standing there so I asked them if they had seen a bald gentleman pushing a cart walk by. They looked at each other then asked “Does he have a jean purse in his cart?” “Yes he does” I replied and they burst out laughing again. “He went that way”, they pointed, “we thought he had matched his purse to his outfit perfectly!” I laughed then too getting the joke.
So the next time you see something that seems out of place to you, just remember, there’s another side to the story.
