Two weeks ago, my cousin and I had been on the search for several decoration pieces at target. Somehwere along our search, we had gotten distracted and were browsing through the clothing section when an old man approached us, and asked if we could answer a question for him. Upon agreeing to answer, he began to tell us about the “masked” lady that he saw, motioning with his hands to cover his face, trying to recreate the image of the niqabi woman he had seen walk by earlier in the store.
