Smooth like butter

I was hanging out at Wal-Mart last night, having just returned some Redbox movies.

I was perusing some canned goods when a guy standing nearby said, "Hello." Obviously he was not talking to me because WHO STARTS CONVERSATIONS WITH STRANGERS IN THE GROCERY STORE?! No one I fraternize with, that's for sure.

He had said it quietly enough that I could politely ignore him, because who knows for certain whether or not I heard him? I examined a can of creamed corn, and was relieved the greeting was not repeated.

However, a few moments later the guy suddenly said, "It's like a tornado went through here, huh? Hard to find anything." I believe my reply went something like this: "Hehehe" *smile, turn, and leave*

I'm really smooth--better lock up your sons.

He was, actually. Ya know...tall, chubby, late 20s/early 30s.
