feeling just a bit awkward

Another Awkward Moment…

After Kim and I bought a chimenea today, (does anyone know how to spell that?) we needed to find a stand that was just the right size. I looked a little funny using my belt to measure the base of the chimenea and the stand, but it worked. We found one that fit perfectly!

The only problem was that I only had a 500 peso bill and the stand cost 70. “Would this rather robust woman have change for a 500?” I thought to myself. And I don't mind saying, I was a bit shocked to hear her say yes. (Well, she said, “si” but you get the point.) What was odd was that she had to dig into her bra to pull the change out. Of course I've seen this in the movies, but I don't think I've ever had someone, right before my eyes, make change for me out of their underwear. Then, as she's digging around in there, I realize that I'm still putting my belt back on. How could this possible look to those just passing by?

Needless to say, I felt just a bit awkward.
