In Passing

Crossing a very busy intersection today while walking to a fast-food restaurant for lunch, a man in a blazer passed me in the intersection and said, "You're looking very attractive today."


I haven't felt for years now that anyone has noticed how I looked!

Back when I briefly lived in New Jersey 'til 2010, on a Sunday game day hours before my Cowboys were playing the Jets, a teen-aged boy in a Jets jersey passed me, wearing a Dallas Cowboys sweatshirt, on the sidewalk, then turned back: "Your eyes are so green, I know you're really for the Jets."

The kid could not have been more than 16! (And how the hell did he see the color of my eyes??) But... what an utterly charming thing to say! :)

Some guys just have it.
