I meet some very interesting people at work every single day, but one person tops them all. I talked about this person a while back when I wrote “Luck Be A Lady”. She is the one that gave me the infamous lucky rock that I carry with me at all times. She is a really nice person, but I would be lying if I said she wasn’t a tad strange. In all fairness I probably only think she is strange because I don’t truly understand her. Either way this is story of what happened a week or so ago.
I was walking across the front of the store when she walked up to me and began to hug and kiss me. She whispers in my ear, “I love you, God bless you.” She let go of me and began to dig into her purse. I thought for sure she was going to give me another lucky rock, but instead she pulls out a business card. As she hands me the card she says something that even a week later I am still trying to wrap my head around. The words that came out of her mouth were, “If I die, my name Vita.”
That was it. After that she walked away to leave me to ponder what just happened. “If I die, my name Vita.” Just six little words have had my head spinning since I heard them. What did she mean by that? Is she dying? If so, why tell me and give me her card? I am a guy that she sees once in a while, and before this happened, didn’t even know her name.
“If I die, my name Vita,” seriously, what the fuck does that mean? I wish I knew. I wish I wasn’t so completely confused and shocked when she said it, so I could have asked her what the hell it means. I just keep repeating it over and over again, hoping that at some point it makes sense to me, but then again isn’t that the definition of insanity?
