Today I went to the grocery store. While admiring how colourful my groceries were a woman managed to sneak up behind me.
"Oh," she said. "That cucumber is huge."
I glanced back at her, took a moment to note the gray hair and glasses, and said, "I know. I've never had one so big. I don't think I'll be able to handle it."
She smiled, ever-so-pleasantly, and replied, "Of course you will, dear. It's going to make a lovely salad."
I smirked, as that's what I usually do when talking about long vegetables. And, against my better judgement, said, "Oh, I imagine. But I won't be eating it."
The woman looked confused, to say the least. All it took was a wink from me to clear things up. She then switched lanes.
I needed a laugh. I'm glad I could delived.
And if you were wondering, it was a long English cuke. ;)
