Once Again, I Am Embarrassed By the Print Media...

For my first embarrassing moment involving the written word, click here...

This morning I got up bright and early to make sure I had everything in order for my dad's visit. Editor's Note: There are some things in my apartment that I've let slide for a while now. Dad's visit is the perfect catalyst for improving or replacing them. So, as I do almost everyday, I went to Target.

As I stood in line, waiting to purchase my brand new toilet seat, my eye caught the cover of last week's People magazine, pictured above. I picked it up and began to flip through it in search of the cover article on the new Harry Potter book. That's when the person in front of me completed their purchase and moved on. Of course, I didn't realize this until I heard the cashier say, "So you think Matthew McConaughey is sexy too?"

Immediately my head was flooded with possible denials. "Oh no, I was just reading about Harry Potter." or, "I'm doing research on what women want in men.", or even "He's my cousin." But, by the time I waded through the thought flood of responses, all I could muster together was, "Who doesn't?" This was, of course, greeted with giggles from at least 3 women standing around the register.

Thank you, People magazine, for providing the patrons of Target with a bit of humor, albeit at my expense, this morning...

1. It's true- who doesn't?
2. Thank you so much! I downloaded the song and I love it! I'm flattered that you would make the comparison. Hopefully we can collaborate on a new Big Love theme song.
3. If you really haven't seen BL yet, I'm eager to hear what you think...let me know.
