The other day I was in Hobby Lobby, I like it because among other reasons they play hymns as background music - nothing like buying scrapbooking supplies to "How Great Thou Art" played on the steel drums : - anyway, I walked past a very pretty woman. It was her eyes that really caught my attention but as I thought about her eyes I suddenly realized that she also had hot pink hair!! It could have been a wig (or not) but it was definitely HOT PINK!!
I resisted the urge to turn around for a second look. I have done that before and have either gotten a comment such as, "What are you looking at?" or rolled eyes or some sort of negative response. So I just kept walking. But I was thinking about the fact that some people wear the strangest things, or choose very unusual hair styles or colors, or put earrings in places that make you want to clean them up a bit (ie. the nose ring) or have tatoos that - well, just really, really catch your attention! And then when you give that particular item your attention they act like you are the rudest person in the world or worse than that they challenge you for noticing - as if you could help but notice!! And the thing that is even stranger, they act as though they are the most normal looking person you would even run across.
But the one that I will never forget, I mean it caught my attention in a way that nothing every has, was a man in WalMart. He was pretty chubby, okay he was way big in the stomach area. And he had his shirt pulled up to just under his arms exposing his rotund belly and nearly his entire chest. I guess it must have been a very hot day although the store had great air conditioning. I couldn't help but check him out twice as I tried my best to figure out if he just didn't notice that his shirt was pulled up to his arm pits or if he actually intended to expose himself, and I mean EXPOSE himself. And all I can say is it was a very very very very ugly sight, shocking, disgusting, gross, unbelievable, etc. etc, etc. And the really sad thing was his wife was shopping with him and acting as if this was the most normal thing in the world!!
