prostitute laundry

9 Sep

Last week, I was mistaken for a prostitute. I will now use this as an excuse to post what I was wearing.

I knew what the man in the sedan was looking for. He was driving obviously slow, and there’s a new hooker in my neighborhood. There have been quite a few creepy old dudes driving slow down my street this summer. Still, I didn’t expect him to stop next to me.

He rolled down his window, and I moved far back on the sidewalk. He asked if I needed a ride to St. John Street. That’s specific, I thought. I must have misheard him.

“St. John Street? It’s right down there,” I said, pointing.

“Yeah, I know,” he said. “Do you need a ride there?”

I played dumb, told him I didn’t live on St. John Street. He looked embarrassed, and he wasn’t driving slow anymore when he drove away.

The funny thing is, I wasn’t even wearing my sluttiest outfit.

not even close.

    Hmmm, this worries your mother in so many ways I can’t/won’t go there. However, I do remember a day early in Kate’s high school career. She came to breakfast dressed…well…I said “oh, is it Hooker Day?”. She did a uturn and went and changed. I am going to calm myself by thinking that possibly most hookers just have a good fashion sense, because we know Kate does!

    Oh my! Considering that 15 years ago back in Chicago when I was a young whippersnapper entering the non profit direct service world. My first gig was working with women who were involved in prostitution and trying to get out of it, I can say that nothing about your outfit looks like what I saw real working girls wear.

    Clearly that man needed his eyes checked. Cute outfit and wish I was young and fit enough to rock such a cute little skirt. However while I am still wearing single digit sizes its become clear that at almost 40 my love of the mini skirt has soured and become one sided.

      Yeah, I don’t know what that guy was thinking, not because of my clothes, but because I was walking super fast. I would think power walking away from the customer would be bad for business.
