An Awkward Encounter

Do any of yall recall the post from last year about a lady bathing in public at the mineral water place?  It was a good one...

Today I had another one of those really awkward encounters.  There wasn't much work so around 11am I went to my backyard area with the intention of laying out.  After about 45 minutes in the sun my landlord lady comes outside with a 2L bottle of water and started pouring it on me.  Then rubbing it in.  It wasn't creepy, just, awkward.

Again, I'm sure she was trying to be helpful... maybe she wanted me to feel like I was at a pool instead of laying on a concrete slab with a full clothes line flying around me.  Then she came back with an umbrella because she didn't want my face to burn.  Don't worry though, it didn't weird me out enough to move.  I stayed out there awhile longer.

But, yeah, I think I could've gone without that.  Gotta love Bulgaria.

You are going to miss her! Nobody else will ever have your perceived needs on the front burner every waking minute like she does!!
