The lady on the horse.

Bob and I were checking out at Walmart this weekend, when the cashier said..

"Your hair. You look like that lady on the horse."

I didn't know what to say so I just smiled and said thank you. Then she persisted with..

"You know who I'm talking about right? The lady on the horse."

I looked at Bob, like maybe he knew. We both just smiled awkwardly and said we weren't quite sure who the lady on the horse was. The cashier then said..

"Gwen... you now Gwen.."

I interjected with Stefani? Although I knew in a million years no one would confuse me with her, and further more, had she ever even been on a horse?

That's when it came to her. "Guinevere."

I said thank you, even though she never said anything like "Your hair is so pretty, it looks like Guinevere's". I assumed it was a compliment, though a strange one. We thanked her and left. When we got out of ear shot, I just burst into laughter. I don't know why it struck me so funny, but I was dying. Maybe it was because she referred to her as the lady on the horse, as if that was something we would all know right off the bat, or maybe it was just a bizarre conversation. But it was the highlight of my evening.

Happy Monday! The sun is shining, it's a beautiful day. In fact it might be the perfect day for a horse ride.

Next time you are at Bob's grandparents you will have to get on a horse and take pics! And you could name a few cows also. :)
