Getting an eyeful at the mall.
Don't Look, Margaret!

Don’t look now!” she heard whispered in her ear.

She sighed. When would people who said that ever learn? When you say something that provocative, the person you say it to will invariably do what you ask them not to!

She looked up from searching in her handbag for a gift card she wanted to use at the mall. Looking all around, she didn’t see anything at first. Then she saw one of the most unique sights of her life!

She followed him with her eyes and was amazed when he turned smoothly to run right past her.

“Margaret, I told you not to look!” her husband complained.

“Since when has that stopped me!” she retorted, as she kept following the man with her eyes even as she admired his butt.

“Aren’t you ashamed of yourself? You’re acting like a voyeur!” her husband, Steve, started.

“I suppose if it were a woman, you wouldn’t look!” Margaret asked in retaliation.

Steve blushed and was suddenly quiet.

“I thought so! My grandmother always said what’s good for the gander is good for the goose!”

“Isn’t it the other way around?” Steve wondered.

“Not when she said it.”

“What are you so sore about? He was wearing a mask!” Margaret said as Steve stalked off, while doing his best to pretend he didn’t know her!

She let him go as she considered the fact that she’d never seen the like before, even when it was a fresh, new fad. Margaret remembered the lithe, handsome man who’d just run by her in the all together. She smiled.

“Actually, he was wearing two masks!” she said to herself as she hurried to catch up with Steve before he left without her!
