I've been in this supermarket for about an hour now... and I think my bill is about $200 dollars. WAYYYYY to expensive for my budget!!

So now I'm taking the items that I don't need and putting it back, like this $5.49 gallon of cookies and cream ice cream back.

I took a sip of my unpaid Pepsi and continued to shop. Moments later, the muscular man walked up to me.

"Excuse me..."

I turned to him.

"Hello again." I said cheerfully.

"I just want to thank you. My best friend was so pissed cause I called him frantically cause I thought I lost his child."

I nodded in agreement.

The man continued: "He wanted me to find you and personally thank you."

"I really didn't do anything. I  was going to take him to customer service. But I'm glad he's safe. I'ma need you to pay attention though. " I giggled.

"Children, aren't usually my thing though. By the way, my name is Malik."

"Hi Malik, my name is Demetreus, nice to meet you."

We shook hands and Malik continued:

"And this is the baby's father, Mikhael!" He said as I turned around to meet eyes with Kel.

I was surprised. Kel chuckled and said, "Well wassup. I wasn't expecting this."

"I wasn't expecting this neither."

Kel responded, "Well this is my best friend Malik, and my son Jaiden."

"Wow, that is cool! Your a father!"

"Yea, its my best kept secret."

"You should be proud of a beautiful son which you have. He is very attractive like his dad... "

I thought: DID I JUST SAY THAT OUT LOUD?!?!?! I could have slapped myself.

Malik chuckled as I started to fumble through my words.

"I mean like he's cute like a baby... not saying your not attractive, but your son is cute cause he's a baby, and he's innocent. Not saying your not innocent but I'm... wait... um... I'm just trying to say..."

Kel smiled, "It's okay Dee, I knew what you meant."

I sighed...

The End
