Conversation in Starbucks

How it began. “Do you live locally? You look so familiar.”

Favorite excerpt?
“I know who you look like, but I can’t remember her name. She lives on the Big Island, she’s a paddler, and was known for encouraging women to participate in outrigger competitions. Oh ... she must be 85 years old by now.”
Honestly, I don’t remember a single word he said after this moment. The only thought I was capable of:   I look like an 85-year-old woman?


  1. Im sure they didnt mean it like that Arlette.
    But must admit , it gave me a little giggle .

  2. The poor guy probably didn't even realize how it sounded. I sure hope he wasn't trying to hone his flirtation skills.
