Too old to be hip?

Here's one more funny from my vacation:

I took my 16 year old niece to the mall. We were shopping in Ross (the store which I am still mad that we don't have back in Ohio--Mervyn's too) when this creepy guy starts giving her the up and down look. He and his buddy were not so non-chalantly browsing through the clearance section in the women's clothing. I told my niece that I did not think it was women 's clothing that these guys were shopping for. So to avoid them, we headed for the shoe section. I found these really cute pink Sketchers. They fit and were comfy so I decided to buy them for myself not thinking much about it. When checking out, the mid 40's cashier hands the bag to my niece saying, "Here hon, I'll give you the bag cuz I know your momma ain't buyin' no pink sneakers for herself." I calmly replied to this assuming bee-atch, "First of all, I'm not her "momma" and second, those ARE my shoes." She seemed to be in quite some shock as we walked out the door. It was quite entertaining.

Aren't they cute? And I didn't even realize until I got home that they match perfectly with my pink puffy vest jacket. Totally rad, man.

Now you can call me a dork. I deserve it after all.

    Creepy mall guys scare me almost as much as creepy needy sales attendants… BLAH!! MALLS!!

    I know, I am pretty amazing aren't I? Cool shoes and computer knowledge to boot, eh? I shouldn't get too cocky though. It was only one picture so far.
