Oh my. I don’t know if it’s the baby sucking the nutrients out of my brain or the lack of sleep… but I am not functioning at 100% lately. My recent adventure involves a REALLY embarrassing moment.

I went to the convenience store and could not find my crave of the moment (chocolate covered raisins).

I approached a young employee and asked her for help.

I asked, “Do you sell Gillette raisins?”

She looked at me like I was crazy.

I then reiterated my point… “You know, the Gillette raisins.”

She looked confused. I thought to myself, I realize she’s young but I’m sure she’s heard of Gillette raisins before!

She said, “I’m not sure what you’re talking about.”

Good grief! I was getting frustrated and I wanted my chocolate covered raisins asap!!! What was wrong with this girl?

I then said, “You know the Gillette chocolate covered raisins?”

She smiled and said, “Oh… Glossette raisins.”

I wanted to find a hole to hide in. Poor girl. She was probably so confused and trying to figure out whether I wanted razors or chocolate raisins. Hopefully she just dismissed me as one of “those” crazy pregnant ladies.
