Magnetic Me?

There's a question we ask all the hotties each year -- my favorite question, in fact: If you were arrested tomorrow, what do you think you'd be arrested for?

I've heard some great answers: mistaken identity, trespassing, indecent exposure, you name it.

Until recently, I did not have an answer to this question. But now I do: It would probably be shoplifting.

Not because I'm a shoplifter; to the contrary, I'm not. But a very strange thing has started to happen.

Whenever I walk INTO Walgreens, Target, or Celery Re-Sale on Brookhaven Circle, I set off the door sensors.

And when I walk out of Walgreens, Target, and Celery, the same thing happens.

Luckily, so far, no one has really cared. At Celery, I reminded them it went off when I walked in. At Target, I walked in and out with a bunch of people. At Walgreens, where it's happened several times, I just look around, like, "Who, me?" and then carry on.

But I'm not going to lie; it has started getting a little uncomfortable.

It's been at least a month and I've worn different shoes, different outfits, I've left my purse in the car, it still goes off.

So, internet, any ideas? (Other than using Walgreens drive-thru pharmacy option?)

do you have one of those tags in your pants that you are supposed to remove? i had a pair that even though i had washed several times still set off the sensor at target.

Obviously, the CIA planted a tracking device in one of your molars. My suggestion, tin foil hat. Works every time.

RE: Stacey

I thought of that, but I've been wearing different clothes every time. Different shoes. Carrying a different purse.

Re: PD

Thanks. Do you know where can I get one like yours?

Obviously, you have an anti-theft tag caught in your digestive system somewhere. Perhaps an enema?

Hmmm, that could explain a lot, tho not how it got in there.
