Today was my birthday! Husband got my a fan-freaking-tastic Kindle! Seriously, the man knows me so well: technology and literature. First book buy? Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris.
We made a chocolate cake (from scratch!) and went out to dinner with some new friends from our small group. It was a busy day and a lot of fun. I did have to study this morning for some hours so we went to B&N. While over in that area I thought I would pick up some applications for work at some retail stores. I walked into J Crew first and had my very first awkward-married-person-moment. I was greeted by a guy and here was our conversation:
Guy: Hey, welcome to J Crew, can I help you with anything?
Me: Actually, I was wondering if you guys are hiring right now.
Guy: Well, we are always accepting applications, would you like one?
Me: Sure, that would be great.
(We walk over to the counter)
Guy: I'm Taylor by the way.
Me: I'm Rachel
Guy: Do you go to school around here?
Me: Ya, I go to UNCW
Guy: Me too! What year are you?
Me: A Junior
Guy: Oh, okay, I am a senior. Do you live on campus?
Me: Oh... no... well my husband is in the marine corps... so... (realizing that the fact that I am married and that he is in the marine corps has nothing to do with where we live)... uh... no. We don't live on campus.
Guy: oh. got it.
Yep. I should have just yelled STOP HITTING ON ME. Which is ridiculous because the poor guy was just being nice and I made it super awkward and I didn't even mean to! It just popped out of my mouth and now I don't even want to return the application. I am an awkward married woman.
Here are some pictures from my otherwise unawkward day
