Tough guy, eh?? Pffftttt....

On the way home from work today, I had to stop at the local market. I went in, got what I needed, and exchanged pleasantries with the locals who work there, you know the drill... As I was leaving, my phone rang, so I put my crap in the backseat and went about my phone call, while getting in the car. Not one to talk and drive, usually, I sat in the parking lot while we chatted. I glanced to my left and saw this dude standing beside this really tricked out lowrider, smoking a cigarette. When I say he looked like a thug, I mean it. Face and neck tattoos, more jewelry on than I probably own, flat brimmed hat to the side, wife beater, the whole nine-yards. I noticed him not because of how he looked really, but for the vicious snarl on his face, as he was giving me the greasy eye. I looked right back, as is my way, like WTF are you looking at, asshole??!! He looked away, yay me. Small victories, ya know? Anyway, this car was frickin' hot! Windows were black as night, chrome everywhere, just beautiful. I was just thinking, what a yutz, when all of a sudden he bends over, peering in the windows and proceeds with the most adorable baby talk I have ever heard!!! Then he starts making ridiculous faces, opens the door and out pops a precious little girl, all dolled up in pink from head to toe. Immediately out went the cigarette and he scooped her up and gives her a huge kiss while she giggled hysterically. So stinkin' cute. He looked at me again and smiled. I smiled back, and put it in reverse, content with my warm fuzzies. It just goes to show, you never know what's going on inside of people. Lesson learned for the day. XO ~Heather
