As I was leaving the hardware store a dad with two young girls (maybe 8 and 10) were getting in their car. The younger one kept staring at me, so as they pulled away, I stopped dead in my tracks, looked directly at her, and stuck out my tongue in the most dramatic manner I could. She'll have a good story to tell when she gets back to school. I don't really mind the stares, I mean if you go to a hardware store in Omaha wearing a full length, pink polyester evening gown, and a floral hat, it is understood that there will be a few stares. I don't think it is hostile-you can tell the difference between the looks.
