I know that this may sound crazy -- but he may not even own a firearm. Maybe it's just a fashion thing. Years ago I saw a band performing with the lead singer wearing a KA-BAR sheath -- absent the KA-BAR.

Went to El Tapatio in Eden Square for lunch with a friend. No one batted an eye at my XD.
Stopped in the Acme on the way home. A few "Norm!" Greetings and no encounters.

Yesterday's Acme trip: situational awareness edition.

I noticed a guy following me around. Looking away if he thought I was noticing him. I thought maybe he was puzzled by OC.

A few minutes and a few aisles go by. "If you're waiting for Seafood they're closed for the night."

He shook his head no. I didn't feel threatened so I kept shopping, but went to the other end of the shop to see what would happen. Sure enough, there he was. Then I thought he was getting up the nerve to ask me out for coffee and I prepared my "No Thank You" speech like I was getting ready for the Oscars. Yes, this is a thing women have to do, because dudes have been known to get violent when you decline their offer.

I head to a different aisle and am ready to ask, 'WTF is going on' when he comes up to me.

"I like your tattoo. Are you getting dinner for your kids?"

Then I understood. He was mentally challenged and liked the colors of my tattoo. He was still 6'5, 400 worth of challenged but he went on his way, sweetly.

Crisis averted.

So he was checking out a pretty lady with an interesting tattoo? That part is just regular 'guy' behavior. :D

It sounded like he had difficulty with social interactions but you handled it well. :applause:

Went to dinner at La Tonalteca with my friend MaryKate. No issues.

Ice cream at Marble Slab. No issues there either.

Insurance changed since my last eye exam, so I had to get a new eye doctor. After calling around for twenty minutes, I found favorable reviews for KNEISLEY EYE CARE.

Had an appointment on Thursday. Got my eyes examined without the need for dilation (which I hate). Walked out with a pair of contacts, ordered new glasses. Thrilled. Explained that I shoot and am frequently aiming at targets 25 yards away. She made sure my contacts would be suitable.

Not a word was said about my XD. [emoji274]
