Lucifer was at Target - Seriously

It was almost 11:00pm when my sister and I walked into Target together.  All we needed to get at the store was milk,  but this is target so we ended up finding a few more cute things to buy than we had planned.  It didn't take long before we were getting in line to pay for our items.
While I was looking through my purse for my wallet, I noticed my sister Lisa was making friends with the ladies behind us.  They were whispering and laughing.  Those women had seen something I hadn't.  They had noticed who else was in the checkout line.  I had not.

I was next in line to pay so I was hurrying to find my debit card before the cashier finished helping the gentleman in front of me. 

Michael Ballam, aka Lucifer.  "Well, Hello there June..."
The man in front of me handed his money to the cashier, then turned around and looked right at me.   And then I screamed.  
When HE and I were face to face I let out a HUGE scream and freaked out - also scaring the other women in line.  Why?
Because this guy has  played the role of Satan  in a  movie I've seen.  That's all I saw when he turned around and we came face to face - Lucifer was at Target.  This is what I get for shopping late at night. 

I don't know what everyone else was thinking, but I was  thinking that this was it for me....either Target is Satans new hangout or I've done something naughty and Satan now makes house calls. 

To his credit,  while I was about to hyperventilate, Michael Ballam didn't flinch.  I told my friend Diane about this and found out she is a long time friend of his.  I told her I felt bad for screaming in his face that night at Target.  She said he gets this sort of reaction all the time.  Not to worry.   He deals with this often?!   To him, it was just another trip to the store.  To me it was a the time I had a mini heart attack when all I wanted to do was buy milk.

Why is Satan shopping at Target anyway?!
Wow, I guess it's true...EVERYONE loves Target.

The scariest  2 seconds of my life.   


  1. I would've reacted the same way. So funny!

    1. wish you had been there to capture the moment!

  2. Haha. When I went to USU briefly, I had to sing for him to audition for a teacher. It was a little creepy singing for Satan :).

    I'd be worried if he knew your name....

  4. That's funny! My son text me on the first day of his fine arts class at usu and said, "satan is my fine arts teacher". I asked if he was really that bad of a teacher. Then he told me who he was. It was a memorable class that he loved!
