Poof! Baby Powder!

June 11, 2009 // Parenting

Today was a quiet day for us and it was rather enjoyed! In the late afternoon I decided to head out with Ben and pick up an iced latte at Cito Espresso in Yaletown. Delicious as always. Then we did our usual afternoon seawall stroll and then headed to the local grocery store to buy fresh dinner supplies. I made a stop by their baby section and I came across an interesting scene.

This is what I saw. A 50+ year old woman in cruise wear dusting her feet with baby powder. The baby powder that stocked the shelves. Brand new bottles for sale. She ended up getting baby powder all over her sandals and made a huge dusty poof on the floor. She didn’t see me as I stood there watching closely. She put the powder back on the shelf and started to walk away. Leaving silky white footprints behind her with each step. Then she noticed me. She walked a few more steps and I did my best to do my secret agent staring. About four steps into her get away she doubled back and picks up the newly opened baby powder and makes like she is just ‘testing it out’ and will now be purchasing it.

I love coming across funny situations like this. I am sure she thought it was such a good idea before she started. Before the huge white dusting through the baby aisle. Of course as I moved my stroller around I ended up getting the powder even more all over. This time leaving stroller tracks.
