A funny thing happen on the way to the..........

I awoke today quite late due to the inability to sleep through the hurricane of snoring my hubby was lashing at me.......

And the doorbell rang about 10 minutes after waking.

There I stood, still in my PJ's looking at an older Belgian man carving an apple up and jabbering incessantly. He handed me a piece of the apple and motioned for me to take a bite. First thought was, "OMG this crazy nutter is going to poison me and move on to the next hapless victim!"

There would be world wide news reports of mass homicide by poison apple!!!! Sleeping Beauty is rushing into my head at this very moment.

I collected myself quickly, and asked him if he spoke English......in my best and broken German. He motioned for his partner...(yes there were TWO of them) to come to me. While the first one disappeared down the road the second man explained he was from Belgium and came to the area once a year to sell apples. 50 kilos for 56 Euro and 10 kilos for 36 Euro. He was quite the heavy seller. He too offered me a taste of the wares. I took the piece of apple and to my shock it was absolutely delicious. . But, I had to inform the poor man I had no Euro on me at the moment. He then offered to TAKE ME to the bank to get some.... I informed him I am sorry but that would not be feasible......

He got pissed, waved his hand, with the cutting knife still firmly in his grasp, at me and said something in Belgian or German..not sure which and spit on the ground as he walked away. He got in his truck, yelled for his partner and sped off in a fury.

Now, being still in a sleepy daze, I had just realized I had opened my door to the Nutter apple man!!!!

What would any of you have done in my position? I am sitting here and with every tiny noise I jump thinking the Apple Man is back. Sounds like a crazy new theme for one of those "Slasher" flicks.....

"JEEPERS CREEPERS .vs. THE APPLE MAN....a european tragedy"

You're asking me what I'd do in a situation like that? Sheesh ... I have enough trouble choosing a tie in the morning!
