It turns out, our yard sale was a very relaxing experience. I was there with my partner Liz and two other women part of the day Saturday and the whole day Sunday. The weather turned out to be excellent.
Being in the company of women has always felt more comfortable to me, so it was no real surprise this would be any different.
As you can see in the picture, that is me lounging out to the far right.
Even the red neck village was sort of well behaved. I only saw three Confederate flags on the back of pick up trucks and motorcycles.
My only personal challenge was leaving with Liz for a bit on Sunday. We went down the street to a convenience store for snacks and a rest room break. As it turned out, the place was nearly empty and we got in and out with out even a glance from the cashier.
As the day went on, I did have a chance to sit back and reflect on my past. I wondered to myself the differences in hanging out with women rather than men. To me, for the most part women are more laid back when dealing with each other and change when men come around. An example was when a man was waited on versus a woman. The man always received more attention. I guess that is human nature but it’s interesting to see when you have walked both sides of the gender frontier.
The weekend turned out to be fun.
