Mission Nearly Impossible

Assignment: Find Kay (whom I've never met) who is possibly standing outside the Neighborhood Market.  But one can never be too sure. 

Known facts include:  Caucasian.  Female.  Mid 40's.  Blondish hair.  Heavy-set.  No cell phone.

Would you believe that for 15 minutes I chased down 6 women outside the Neighborhood Market asking them if they were Kay?  Because I did.  It occurred to me that every woman in Salt Lake must be a heavy-set caucasian female with blondish hair in her mid-40's.  But we do have a thing for blonde here.

There was some particular confusion with one of the strangers I approached because her name was Day.  She thought I said Day, I thought she said her name was Kay... 
I wonder, have you ever met a woman named Day?

I shouted "Kay!" to another woman across the street and we subsequently ran towards each other as I waved frantically in the air.  She thought I shouted "Hey!"  She was not Kay. 

I did manage to find Kay, or rather Kay found me.  She was inside the building I was supposed to help her get into.  After observing me for a few minutes while I harrassed innocent Kay look-alikes while dodging downtown traffic, she poked her head out the door and said, "Are you looking for me?  I found my own way inside."

Well there you go.
