Now lest this sound like intrigue...let me tell you that it happened across the table of bananas in the grocery store produce section this afternoon.
I was quite presentable in look as I always strive to be, but that is neither here nor there. What happened was: I was inspecting all of the varying stages of ripeness of the bananas being laid out on the large table even as I stood there.
I wanted some that were mostly green with some yellow coming in, and some that were ready to eat. So as I stood and pondered, I felt the impetus to raise my gaze. I did so and across the table was an extremely handsome and I have to say it, sexy looking man. He was looking directly into my eyes and held my gaze. He has a slight smile on his face as well. I dropped my gaze. I picked up several bunches of bananas to look at and as my head rose a bit, the stranger in the grocery and I locked eyes again! How romantic a story this is! Heeee. Anyway, I looked directly back hoping he would look away but no, this time it was I who looked away. I hardly ever do that. I always accept the ol' visual staring challenges but this time, I glanced away. I must be getting weak!
I noticed he was standing by his wife (had to have been) who was also looking at the 'nanners. He was still smiling slightly at me.
If his wife were not there I would have gone straight over and asked if we had worked together in the recent past although when a man is that striking, you ain't gonna forget him. I did not ask as it may have embarrassed him in front of his wife.
Let me hasten to say that Mr. Dark Brown Hair, probably 6'2 handsome person built very well with a wonderfully trimmed and stylish dark beard was a good 30 years younger than me, so it was not a flirtation on his part, guaranteed.
I have wracked my brain trying to think who that could be as that HAD to have been recognition on his side of the nanner table. Alas...I will never know. Darn.
Strangers in the store...exchanging glances.
Something in your eyes was so inviting....
