Today's Happenings

Well.. here it goes.

While about my own business, (searching for a perfectly adorable table lamp as my final gift with Andrew's anniversary money) ..I walk out of Tuesday Morning, unsuccessful at accomplishing my goal, at the same time 3 young ladies are walking out of the Hogi Yogi next door. Recognizing that we are the only humans outside of the stores, I was taken back when I heard one of them shout over something that sounded like "Chelsea!" I naturally turn and look to see who it was they were talking to.. and was confused when I met her anxious stare. I waited a moment and responded.. "me??" .."sorry, my name's Arica." I got a response back that had something to do with "remember me, Tammy's friend?" What was it that this girl didn't understand about my totally different name? I humored her while being completely confused, and responded simply "no, sorry." She waved me off and walked away muttering something not-so-nice under her breath. All the while still looking at me like I was crazy. Is it my fault that I'm not who she SWORE I was? Would I really be lying to this girl pretending I was someone else? Why is it that I am suddenly the one left feeling like an idiot for having no clue who these people were, when I wasn't the one to put myself out there mistaking someone for someone else? I am still baffled. I hope whoever Chelsea REALLY is, doesn't get hate messages from her friend Tammy, for begrudgingly responding in complete confusion to this girl. Sorry Chelsea, I hope I didn't ruin any friendships for you.. do forgive me.

Lesson learned: Pretend to be said Chelsea or whomever the next time someone mistakes you for someone else, so that everyone walks away content from the encounter.
