Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



I Name and Rename Two Teenage Girls at the Groc Store

Groc store shopping is one of my favorite things. The chemist in me loves to discover new things to cook and to taste, that Martha S side of me. I also enjoy my subset of friends, mainly women, who work there. My Groc Store Group. I never know who is going to be there; the mystery of which miss or missus I might meet that day.

About a month ago I was visiting two of my young teenage feminine friends, groc store checkers, a quiet one and a never very quiet one, short and tall respectfully. I suddenly gave them male sounding nicknames without warning. 'P???' and 'R?p???'. Little did I realize that they would actually begin calling themselves that. (The '?'s are hiding the real letters – just wait, there's more, and a reason for the mystery)

The Sunday before Thanksgiving my mother was in town and we made a quick trip to the store and I was hoping that I wouldn't run into these girls, because, I told my mother, I had given them nick names AND my fifty year old brain had forgot what the names were! I did say "Hi" to at least 14 people I knew during our short groc visit, which is about 1/10 of 1 percent of the 14,302 population of Borger. Luckily, 'P???' and 'R?p???' were not there.

The next visit to the store a few days later I saw the short, quiet, very tired 'P???' when I first came in and said "Hi" and a little more, briefly to her as she was busy checking out a customer. Then I heard the tall-not-so-quiet 'R?p???' a few aisles away, so I unsuccessfully tried to sneak up on her. Just as soon as I said "Hi", she said, "Did you see 'Pete' when you came in the store? She's working down there" -> pointing west. Ah, I suddenly remembered, 'Pete' and 'Repeat'.

So earlier today driving home from yet another groc store visit I decided to rename them, only I haven't told them just yet. I will have to catch together some time to make my proclamation. I decided to go with something a little more feminine and Italian sounding, so I chose 'Pita' and 'Repita'. (I have no idea if 'pita' is an Italian word. It just needs to sound Italian.)
