When going through a checkout lane, I don’t go out of my way to see what others are buying.
But when I unload my body wash, deodorant and dryer sheets and see a copy of 50 Shades of Grey come sliding up behind my basket on the conveyor belt, I do take note.
Luckily for her (and quite frankly, me), the other purchases seemed fairly normal. Just a broom and about six different kinds of air fresheners … spanning from a pack of orange pine trees to a couple containers of “fresh linen” beads. Which did happen to get my mind wondering about what kind of hot mess she had going on at home.
May I make a suggestion to others if purchasing the book? If you lead your checkout belt “conversation” with 50SOG, then be mindful of what comes next. Because others ARE watching.
And maybe even blogging about it.
