Little old lady (LOL): Miss, miss!
LOL: Why did you wear those stockings?
Me: Because I like them.
LOL: Really? Because they are HORRIBLE.
*sigh, + eye roll*
Me (to little old man): You wanted help with _______ , I have some time now.
Little old dude (LOD): No thanks, I’m busy [staring at the table, breathing].
Me: Sure, it is just that I’m only here once a week so if you don’t want to do this now you will have to wait until next week.
LOD: No, I think I’ll just keep on [watching dust fall]
Me: No problem, just thought maybe now would be good since you asked and we’ll have to wait until next week.
LOD: Well, maybe if you had on some different stockings.
I want to say that I’m pretty sure he was joking. Perhaps he was entirely serious.
Next week I’m going to wear the burnt orange ones.
