Checking out at the grocery store….
Cashier: (to Captain Thoughtful) Oh! Do you go to that school?
Captain Thoughtful: No, I’m a professor there.
SIDE NOTE – Can we just shout out that people think Captain Thoughtful still looks young enough to be a student at University? I *was* a student like 3 months ago and people were all “Are you someone’s Mom?”
Cashier: That’s awesome! (Looks at me) Are you a professor too?
Me: No, I’m a therapist.
Cashier: That is so cool! Can you call my brother he really needs help?
Cashier: I’m not joking. He’s messed up. Can you call him?
Me: I can’t do that no, but I can tell you where he could get some help.
Cashier: Ok. Do you two have kids?
Cashier: You should. You two would have the cutest baby ever.
Then Captain Thoughtful and I left the store (after I told her where her brother could get some mental health help)and even now, 24 hours later, I’m not sure what even happened there. It was like the weird dreams you have when you eat too much cheese before bed. Except it really happened and I didn’t even get to eat cheese.
