GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA
Hello there to all my readers!
I truly hope that this weekend is going to be a wonderful one for you all!
Have you ever been privy to an incident that stopped you in your tracks and left you agasp?
Well I witnessed just one of those moments this weekend when, for a moment, I was not sure if I should take the incident seriously or succumb and laugh my head off.
My husband and I had opted for some 'retail therapy' yesterday morning.
It was one of those sedate shopping expeditions where one has no agenda except to simply take some time to window shop and enjoy the company of your partner.
Well, 'the Boss' and I were about to board an escallator in a clothing store, when we noticed a neatly dressed women in front of us, in the company of two young children. She was chatting happily to them as we all took our turn at boarding the escallator to the next shopping level.
As the mother and her children reached the top of the escallator ahead of us she seemed to instantly freeze. There, a little distance in front of us all was a half-dressd mannequin, which was flaunting itself in a pair of jeans. A scarf hung around its neck and I presume the decorator's plan was to cover its two exposed breasts. Well, the scarf had slipped aside and the woman in front of us found herself face to face with a set of dainty plastic boobs.
Without a second thought she gasped,
"Oh, my G*D!",
...and then rushed up to the mannequin, leaving her two youngsters rooted to their spot.
I watched, with great amusement, as the women hastily and desperately tried to reallign the scarf on the mannequin so that what she deemed 'un-see-ables' would no longer be exposed.
It didn't take long before she had completed her task and straightened herself up. She primly turned around on her high heels and walked back to her startled children.
"That's better!" she uttered, clearly pleased with herself.
I was so amused by the incident that I later went back to the shop to take a photograph to share with you.
I am sure that this time there were others watching me with similar amusement.
"Strange tourist!" ..I heard them whisper,
whilst I stood there taking pictures of the half-dressed mannequin!
How do you respond to this incident?
I'd love to hear!

Have an awesome day and lotsaluv
