Maybe it's just the store where I shop. Maybe it's just two women at the prepared foods counter having a little fun. Maybe it's just me.
Yesterday evening I stopped in Whole Foods to get a couple of things and decided to pick up a sandwich for dinner. While I was trying to decide which one to get, I heard someone behind the counter say, "Hi, how have you been?" I almost didn't look up, because, well... she couldn't possibly be speaking to me - I don't know anyone who works at Whole Foods. But I did look up and she had a big smile on her face and was looking at me. I think I got out a weak little "fine". Anyway, I told her I hadn't decided yet and kept looking. Then it happened again. Not "Hi, how are you?"... but "Hi, how have you been?"
