I was GOING to save this for awkward + awesome, but this is just too awkward for me to wait.
Earlier today I was in the mall (ew I hate the mall) to return a dress I didn't end up wearing to the wedding we went to this past weekend. After I returned the dress, a 40% sign at the Gap managed to lure me in. Let me interrupt this enthralling story by saying that I only had 1/2 a cup of coffee today. And ran 5 miles. I was TIRED. Anyway, I was meandering around Gap, looking at their sale items (40%!), when I noticed a cute scarf on a mannequin. As I went to reach for the scarf to check the price, the mannequin moved.
MOVED because it wasn't a mannequin. It was a freakin' lady waiting for a friend- standing perfectly still, might I add, with sunglasses on. Ok seriously, who wears their sunnies in a store? But whatever, no excuses. I almost touched someone thinking they were a mannequin.
In the seconds that followed- I tried to make my outstretched hand seem like it was going for something behind the woman, but was fairly unsuccessful since my fingers were like an inch from her neck.
I turned red. I ran. I promptly texted Alivia and Em and then hid in Starbucks until it was safe to walk past Gap and to my car.
I shouldn't be allowed in public sometimes.
