okay, so i ran up to the UPS store near the office yesterday to have a package overnighted (it was too late to call for a pickup). i walk in and briefly discussed with the gentleman behind the counter what i needed to do to overnight the package. he hands me a form to fill out, which i immediately start doing… as i’m bent over the paper diligently writing, he asks –
“is that your natural color of eyes?”
the reply, “yep” caught on my tongue as i thought, did he just say EYES? is that my natural color of… EYES? i mean, i’m used to people asking if that is my natural color of HAIR – being a redhead and all, but… eyes!?
“yep” the reply made it’s way out as i thought, ‘yes, i’m a natural blue…’
then it occured to me that red hair and blue eyes aren’t the most common combination – usually it’s red hair and green eyes. ooooohhhhh! silly me.
“well, they’re very pretty, if you don’t mind me saying so,” he returned.
“oh, thank you” i grinned down at the form, highly amused by the whole interchange.
haha! never been asked that question before… my eyes must have looked unusually bright yesterday afternoon!
