I am Not Here to Rob the Place.......Really!!

Do you ever do something without thinking? I do, sometimes........every day........several times a day!! I had to run some errands this morning because I needed to buy some butane fuel for my jewelry torch. The fuel can usually only be found at a cigar or smoke shop.

NOTE TO SELF: Next time you have to run into a cigar / liquor store to buy butane gas try not to carry your torch in your hand like it is a hand gun, especially since it looks just like one. It makes people nervous!!

I guess I freaked out the clerk at the counter. The poor guy barely spoke English and I practically scared him to death. He finally calmed down, but he got nervous again when I asked about buying butane. Oh well, at least he didn’t wet his pants.

I can probably share a cell with Bailey!
