So I was at the mall yesterday, in the food court, just getting a burger to tide me over until Mr. Rilch could come get me. Anyway, I saw a quarter on the floor and bent over to pick it up.
And when one of the aging hippies at the nearest table chortled with glee, I realized I’d fallen for a very old trick. But hey, I got to keep the quarter, and they didn’t try to follow me or anything, so it’s all good.
But what gave me pause as I was walking away was that I could have sword I heard the other aging hippie call out, “Parton!” Granted, I was wearing a rather low-cut dress, so the moment must have been rather similiar to the scene in 9 to 5 when Dabney Coleman knocks the pencils off his desk so he can look into Dolly Parton’s cleavage while she’s gathering them up. But DP’s not really the gold standard for boobage these days, is she? So I think these guys might have been showing their age (in one sense). OTOH, “Pamela Anderson!” or “Anna Nicole” don’t come as trippingly off the tongue.
