Creepy Airport Guy

Yesterday I flew home...Woo Hoo! And usually I don't check a bag, I just take it as a carry on but I wasn't thinking and I checked my duffelbag, so when I arrived in St. Louis I had to stand and wait forever for the bags to come out on the little whirly-doo baggage thingy. Soooo..I'm standing there, minding my own business, fielding phone calls from my Dad asking me if I"ve got my bag yet or not, when I hear this deep voice with a hot accent say, "Are you from around here?" In my mind I'm thinking, "Yeaaah buddy!" because I"m thinking this guy is totally hot to match his totally hot voice. So I turn around to answer him to find this creepy looking guy with hair longer than mine and capri pants on with his combat boots. Talk about a keeper, right?? No. Despite being taken off guard by his looks, I appeased him and did the nice thing and answered him and talked to him for a bit. I won't go into all the details of our titillating conversation but this little blip from it might give you an idea of what the rest of it was like.

Brooke: So you live in Salt Lake? That's cool, what brought you there?
Creepy Man: I moved with a friend and have hung around because of work.
B: Oh, what is it that you do?
CM: I'm a grave digger at one of the local cemeteries.
B: ...interesting.
CM: Yah I love it. I dig a lot of graves. Sometimes if I dig in the wrong spot by accident I hit old coffins. Don't worry though, I've never hit a dead body. At least not yet, but how cool would that be.
B: ...yah, way cool....
CM: You should come to work with me sometime and help me dig a few graves! I generally work at night when no one is around!
B: ...Um, as fun as digging graves sounds, I'm gonna have to pass. Oh! Look! There's my bag! See ya!

And then I ran away as fast as I could. In case you were wondering, I didn't actually see my bag. The baggage thingy wasn't even twirling, I just didn't want to talk to him anymore. I don't know about you but nothing about going to a graveyard to dig graves with a creepy man at night when no one is around sounds appealing to me. At all.

Haha, that's awesome! I'd have to speculate that he was trying to creep you out, because that conversation was pretty ridiculous.
