I'm still so embarrassed! The other night when I went with my mom to vote, a woman was seated beside some people I know really well. We greeted them, and my mom was all "Oh hiiiii, how on earth are you?" to the woman beside them. And I recognized her right away.
Or at least I thought I did.
I grinned really big and said, "HEY! Thank you for your donation!"
She was saying, "Hey, I haven't seen you in sooooo long!" at the same time. But she sort of froze and looked confused by my donation comment.
I was still beaming and almost said, "Huh? I just saw you at at the grocery store a few weeks ago." But I kind of froze, too.
When we walked on in to vote, I asked my mom, "Wait a sec...who was that?"
My mom told me it was our old neighbor! I hadn't seen her in years. I had thought it was a friend from church who had donated recently to my walk! The only good thing is, my mom could see the resemblance and why I had confused them.
So I thanked someone for a donation who I hadn't even asked for a donation! I'm seeing donors where there aren't any! I may be a bit obsessed. Or is it possessed?
You know, after I voted, I should have gone back out and asked her for a donation since I'd already thanked her for one!
