While I was organizing magazines in the display near the front door, I greeted a customer on his way out. He responded with an unusual comment, he said: “the mannequin at the back of the store is REALLY wearing that dress!”
What would you respond to a comment like that?
I chose to say: “…uh uhm..” in an attempt to collect myself and not look too astonished.
He probably thought I was wondering which mannequin he was referring to, so he continued, while pointing to the mannequin: “that purple dress looks really good on her”, I said slowly “…oh… yeah…” smiling and nodding in agreement [what else could I have said?].
He explained “I had to take a double look; she looks so good, someone could ask her out on a date”, at this time, I could only think of a line in the Madagascar movie by the penguins, and I kept repeating it to myself: “just smile and wave, boys, smile and wave….”
Here is the mannequin wearing the dress mentioned above
