So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

he wasn't wearing a beret this time

in a horrifying turn of events, the other night i ran into Squealer at Target.

in a city as small as Philadelphia, this sort of thing is bound to happen once in a while, especially when discounted toothpaste and DVDs are involved.  but the run-in took me by surprise nonetheless.

i guess Squealer is eating these days, because i was meandering through Target's awesome grocery section when i hung a left around the corner out of one aisle, ready to swoop into the next aisle, and there he was.  right in front of me.  

i suppressed a yelp and a gag -- i didn't have time for such luxuries -- as i spun my cart back around to the right and hauled ass down the cereal aisle.  i made a bee line across the store and spent the next 20 minutes hyperventilating while checking out all the new Wii games.  i don't own a Wii.

needless to say, my shopping experience was ruined.  i found my roommate and told her that that person was somewhere in the store.  i was on edge until we were safely seated in the car, with all doors locked.  

this city is becoming littered with ghosts of dates past.  i gotta move.

OMG! That is one of my worst nightmares: running into a horrible date somewhere randomly. Thank gosh for your quick reflexes and stealth Wii blending-in moves!
