People Watching

Its moms morning out, I’m in the mall waiting on an Apple repair when a kiosk mercenary asks if she can play with my hair. No sooner do I notice a rather large Latino man, his red lipstick kiss mark tattoo bearing thru his wife beater T walking alongside a 3rd trimester preggie sporting 5″ espadrilles. I’m battling the temptation to indulge myself in a $5 bubble tea from Teavana, so I park myself on a nearby leather bench in hopes that the aroma might satisfy. There’s a silver-haired woman with a cane wearing sneakers and red-rimmed coke bottle glasses sitting across from me. She’s talking with her hands {no doubt about Mr. Kiss Mark} and I wonder how long she and the man in the black beret and knee high socks sitting next to her have been married. Perhaps they’re just lovers. Perhaps he has kiss mark tattoos on his chest. Or does she?

This is the only time in a week I’m afforded an uninterrupted thought and this is how I indulge myself? People watching?!

Ugh… Another kiosk assassin.

On second thought…. I’ll have a large Pear Luna bubble tea…

    I don’t know what a large Pear bubble tea, but I’ll have one too!
