Did I See What I Thought I Saw?

Did you ever have one of those moments when your brain stalls and seems to hesitate before sounding off an alarm that the data just processed was unusual/questionable/out-of-the-ordinary? Such a moment happened to me a couple days ago.

It was a bright, sunny, calm morning with the temperature hovering about 80 degrees. As we were driving to to my husband's physical therapy session, we passed a woman wearing a bright yellow rain slicker with the hood covering her head. It took a couple of moments before the brain kicked in and let me know that the woman's garb didn't fit the weather. Ever since, I've been wondering why she was wearing that rain slicker.

I'm sitting here with my cup of decaf taking in your post. Interesting way you write! Am glad to see how so many blogs remembered 9/11.

I write mainly about direct marketing. I try to help people in network marketing.

Carry on! Am glad you took the time to create this site.

HAHAHA! Loved your post. Yes, I understand exactly what you mean: I have seen totally random things like that before yet it took a little bit for it to sink into my brain. :-)

Keep bloggin'!

Perhaps she was naked under the rain slicker...you never know.

Don't you just hate anonymous spammers? Anyway, about the yellow slicker woman, maybe she wasn't a woman at all, but a terrorist robot out to confuse the masses into submission? You did experience a momentary lapse of reason did you not?
