Oh, that poor sales girl.
She didn’t see it coming.
But I couldn’t help it!
(I promise, I really couldn’t!)
It was just so absurd.
And I’m the kind of girl that laughs (hard) in the face of absurdity.
Tell me a joke? I’ll muster a polite chuckle.
Lend me your favorite comedy? I might crack a smile.
But try to convince me — in your sincerest voice — that men need special moisturizing products because of their “unique body oils,” “masculine hormones,” and “PH body specifications,” and I will launch into a spontaneous giggle fit!
And I will ask you if you’re really serious.
And I will tell you that I’m not trying to be mean.
And I will apologize profusely for my rudeness.
And I will explain that it’s been a long day.
And I will finally win you over by asking, “Didn’t you think it was ridiculous when someone told you to say that?”
And you will be smiling, but looking somewhat disillusioned, when I finally walk away without making a purchase.
And I will still be giggling.
Because that’s what I do.
I can’t help it.
Life is just too funny sometimes.
