I went to the local Shoppers drugmart for some more diapers. Funnily enough, this was the first time ever I wasn't nervous at all. I just acted nonchalant about the whole deal.
So, I got right into it and crouched down in front of the adult diaper section of the desserted aisles. I took time to examine each and every brand (a total of 3), and opted for a change (pun intended). Instead of the usual crappy Depends that I buy (pun unintented), I grabbed some Life brand diapers. Tena was the other brand, but they only make pads and stuff.
So I grabbed some medium Life briefs and headed for the checkout. I didn't even bother to disguise myself, but I oddly didn't care. Course, my nervousness grew when I ended up standing in line for 10 minutes. The lady in front of me was having a discussion with her daughter about what kind of chocolates they should buy. They weren't buying anything else. Just those stupid chocolates. And they talked about it, holding up the line, for 10 freakin minutes.
But I eventualy left.
The next day, while I was working out, one of the guys in my gym class came up to me and said, "I saw you at Shopper's yesterday." Much to my dismay. Damn town is so small you can't walk down the street without running into people you know. I wasn't prepared. "I saw you down the aisle."
All I could think of to say was "Why didn't you say hi?"
If he saw me down the aisle, then that could mean he saw me while I was crouching to check out the diapers on the bottom shelf, or inconspiciously pretending to read the back of a Gold Bon bottle as I checked out the diapers higher up. There was something in the way he smiled, the way he talked, that might suggest he saw what I was buying. It was a nice smile, though, something like "You're secret is safe with me."
I dunno what to think though. Although I'm not chummy with him, he seems like a nice enough guy. Even stranger still, I wasn't embarrassed at all finding out he saw me. There was a split-panic of sheer panic, but I mostly don't care. There are a million reasons I could be buying adult diapers, and the very last is they are for myself.
So I'm not too worried about it.
(BTW: Life brand diapers are even crappier than Depends.)
