A Friday Fantasy Of Sorts

 

A Friday Fantasy Of Sorts  Towards the end of my morning walk, I stopped at a local supermarket for a quick visit.  The ten or under express checkout line should be short for the one item I grabbed.  At least, I thought so.  Wrong.  Anyway.  Standing in line ahead of me was a person I previously noticed on my morning walks. 

 

Distinctive.  Always dressed the same.  A uniform.  Perhaps.  But not typical as one might think.  Hmm...maybe Mary Poppins.  Kinda like that.  Yes, that is how I might tell a police sketch artist should that ever be the situation.  Hmm...did Phoebe Figalily wear a uniform on the television show The Nanny and The Professor?  I don't know but  I do remember the English accent.  Maybe that is a requirement for nannies.  I digress.  But I thought this person was not likely a nanny but you know how minds seem to wander.   Now back to nannies.  As I recall, Fran Drescher never wore a nanny uniform and her accent was distinctly not English for the character she played on the television show The Nanny

 

Well, my nanny fascination ended Friday.  No English accent.  Not even one from Queens.  But the person in front of me at the supermarket did have some cleaning supplies on her shopping list.  So much for fantasies. 

 

I did, however, leave the store with thoughts of a spoonful of sugar.

Roy Kelley - I hope your Monday and week ahead are good as well.

Grant Schneider - I have tried Splenda, definitely not likely to become a favorite or an addiction.

Brings me back to the 1964 Movie, Mary Poppins, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.  You had me wishing I was in the '10 or less items' line, Michael Jacobs...you had my curiosity aroused and I would have engaged her in conversation... Hahaha,,, Michael, I have always preferred knowing rather than wondering.  Perhaps that's the similarity of women and cats -- their curiosity.  What follows?  They just 'gotta' know. Hope you are having a wonderful week, Michael.

Good morning Michael Jacobs,

I envisioned you on your walk and standing in a line to check out with one items..pondering. A good place to let your imagination wonder through your observations. Mary Poppins would have popped into my mind..sorry it was just a fantasy but it was fun pondering!

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - some questions answered as I stood in line.  I realized she wasn't wearing a nanny uniform.  She didn't have an English accent.  Her particular cleaning supplies were on sale.  Maybe not so much "news" in the fantasy department but not such a bad Friday.

Michael, either our nannies don't wear uniforms, or we don't have any that shop at my grocery store.  LOL

Joan Cox - naked nannies?  That seems more like something one may find in California versus Colorado.  I don't actually know if a "nanny" comes with or without a designated wardrobe.

Do you suppose she was giving her Halloween costume a test run? As for nannies, when I visit my son and his family in Danville, nannies abound. They are the ones who drop the kids at school, and pick them up, they are also at the park with the kids. I learned this through my daughter-in-law. She kept pointing out the nannies...they tend to wear leggings...at least that's what I noticed. Lol.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I have previously seen her so I doubt this is her Halloween costume.  The legwear appear to be consistentin with the uniform.

Ray and I had a conversation just this morning about doctor's offices being the best places to people watch! Without 'staring,' you do try to envision where they live, work and how they live. Like the grocer, it's a people-watching-fantasy!

And, will that be a teaspoon or a tablespoon?!!

I have said it before and I say it often because it is true.  And perhaps it is a "space" filler Debe Maxwell, CRS but if people watching is not the ultimate do-anywhere/do anytime activity as is pondering.  Teaspoons, tablespoons, place spoons, serving spoons....pondering on utensils...why not???

Hi Michael Jacobs

Our minds do wander when we are standing in line at the supermarket. Of course, I rarely have under 10 items but I do have a knack at picking the shortest line!

Michael,

Where did you get that magical image of Mary Poppins? I'd love to use it, too.

Interesting. I like to people watch. I've not seen anyone who looks like Mary Poppins out and about in public.
