Mannequin Monday- Another Hubnugget Roundup
It was a bright and lovely day.....
And I decided to go on a shopping spree to get a present for my mother, whose birthday was coming up. I waked into of of the Macy's crowded departments stores and headed over to the jewelry counter and thought of getting my mother a lovely brooch that I was sure she would love. I picked out a beautiful one shaped like a turtle. It really would not have been her style but this particular one had diamonds in the eyes and pearls on the shell. I thought she would love it, so I bought it for her.
Before I got into the elevator to check out another department, I was admiring the turtle, when I noticed that one of the diamonds was missing. Oh, no I thought, this will never do! I went straight back to the counter and told the lady I bought it from and she said I had to go up to the 4th floor and get a refund because it was the last one available. I got on the elevator and was so disappointed because I so wanted her to have it.
When the doors flew open, I walked right into an open space that seemed to be quite empty except for a clear glass jewelry case. Behind the counter was a woman that looked very familiar to me. I said, “Don't I know you from somewhere”? She smiled and said no. I said, “never mind”, and told her about the turtle with the missing diamond and she said, “ Here I have what you need,” and she pointed to the jewelry case. There was the turtle there to replace the broken one and she handed it to me. As I turned . to leave, I asked her why my turtle is the only thing in the whole department. I mean it struck me as very odd. She just smiled and told me to have a nice day.
I shook that strange feeling off and decided to do more shopping and tried to forget about the strange incident. After I finished shopping, I remembered that I needed my mother's brooch gift wrapped, so I decided to go back to the department where the strange lady was. When I got there the whole room was empty. I walked further int the room and I heard my name being called. Jane! Jane! I turned but no one was there, Jane! Jane! What is this I thought to myself, and started getting really spooked; when all of a sudden I walked into what looked like a warehouse looking room covered in mannequins.
I stood in the middle of the room frightened and kept hearing my name being called. OMG, could it be that the mannequins are talking to me? All of a sudden they all start moving and walking toward me. I start to scream and the mannequin that looks like the lady that sold me the brooch says to me not to be scared. She said to relax and I will remember what I needed to remember. I stood there and suddenly everything was coming back to me, I was remembering! The lady mannequin asked if I remembered,and I said, “Yes”! I’m I’m a mannequin, aren’t I? I’m a mannequin. Ah Jane everyone says, welcome back, we all were starting to worry about you when you didn't come back when you were supposed to. I said that I was sorry but I did forget, because once you are out in the real world, you become like everyone else. I forgot that we only have 30 days to be human and then we have to come back. I’m so sorry, But I was having ever so much fun! Oh how I wish I was human, Oh how I wish....
