Rainbow is playing Mahjong with the women at Harpy’s house. Lag, Rainbow’s better half, tags along for an outing with Harpy. They head out for some lunch and beers. They visit the Maritime Museum’s Boat Shop, check out the power and sailing yachts that are in port, do more beers at the back alley pub, lots to do.. Eventually they end up in this tourist trap of a gift shop on the waterfront.
Lag wanted to look for anniversary gift ideas. The shop is crowded as it is a nice day and Saturday afternoon. Lag, not concerned about “points”, stops by the not so expensive jewelry display at the checkout counter, eyeing-up necklaces, ear ornaments, and bracelets. He picks out a pair of matching bracelets. They are near gray in color with a gloss finish.
Harpy is standing beside Lag. Directly behind them are four well decorated, well dressed, stuffy appearing women in their 50’s, not much more than a three feet away. In front of Lag, behind the checkout counter, are a couple of college age hotties. Lag, with bracelets in hand, held up at eye level for closer examination, blurts out, “These look just like the handcuffs I use on Rainbow”.
Harpy lost it.
Harpy glances at the well decorated, stuffy foursome and no one is laughing, near demeaning looks on a couple of their faces. The checkout counter hotties, well, one is laughing the other just shaking her head, as if to say “perv”. Harpy could hear more than a few nearby snickers in the shop.
It is always good to be cautious when taking Lag into public spaces.
Lag really does not use handcuffs on Rainbow!

Yes, this is another post the content of which is not created by me… I found the article on the web; actually it is the website for “Top Tier Leadership” a company owned by President RITA B. CRAIG, CSP. It offers many services from speaking to coaching to strategic planning, etc.
What caught my interest was the summary on “The Power of Confidence, 7 Characteristics of a Confident Person”.
The link below will take you there.
Hugely valuable information regardless of who you are, where you work, where you live, your job or position, your station in life and how you appear to, influence and interact with others.
