I went to Walmart a little while ago, and as I was walking in, a man was coming out. He had a big black smudge of what looked like grease smeared across his forehead. I thought mmm, maybe he has been working on his car or something. No big deal.
About 15 minutes later on the soft drink isle, there was a very pregnant lady standing there looking at drinks. She looked up at me, and she had a big black smudge of something on HER forehead. I stood there for a few seconds looking at her just to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. ---Yep, a big black smudge. I started to say something to her about it, but decided against it.
As I got to the end of the isle, I kid you not, there was an older man with a big black smudge on his forehead. Now this is weird, I thought. Each of these people appeared to be all alone and I don't think had any connection with each other.
I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone or something.
POST SCRIPT: OK. Sister Mary just informed me that today is Ash Wednesday and some religious people mark their foreheads with ashes to show penitence before God.
Uh-huh. I bet God is REALLY impressed with that. LOL.
