“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?
