The weather has been glorious since I landed back here two weeks a go.
This afternoon, for the first time, I only carried my trench coat – in case the temperature dropped, but it didn’t – and had my see through top and jeans. It felt like I was in a tropical country; it was warm, I even could feel my legs were sweating inside my jeans and I wondered whether I should have worn something lighter, or shorter.
Today was Thursday, shopping night, all shops are open until late (and by late I mean until 8.00 PM), so the town was buzzing. I had to walk very slowly after 45 minutes because my feet hurt like hell, so I stopped in front of Gap, resting my feet, pretending that I was admiring the purple top they display in store. Right after that an old man was walking toward me, he stopped suddenly, looked at me, smiled, and said, “Beautiful.”
He clearly meant it was me he was referring to. He was beaming, grinning, and smiling at the same time. I pretended that I didn’t hear and look, and hurriedly got away from my spot.
And it just hit me.
This was the second time a stranger, no, an old man, stopped me in the middle of the street and tried to chat me up.
I realise that once I wear a wedding ring, I am invisible. Men subconsciously can smell and see that from miles away and turn their attention to those whose ring fingers are bare (see below video).
So why then my invisible power didn’t work on old men? Do I have something on my face that attracts old men?
