Say What??

You know when someone says something, and you don't quite understand it? But you kind of want them to think you did so they will leave more quickly?


So I had just finished helping a man. I laughed at something he said (not that funny, but, you know, I have this job where I *get* to be nice to people). He turns back and says:

"If you were any cuter, I'd go on a search for the fountain of youth!"

I made some inane comment, b/c my brain hadn't quite processed it. He steps around the corner and says to his wife in a low voice "isn't she cute?" and then off they go.

I file it away. Then later, pulling it back up, I realized what he had meant.

Even at his advanced age, I think it would take more than the entirety of such a fountain to make it work...

I'm not sure redgirl, I believe he said you were not quite quest worthy for the fountain of youth. So that would make you a second stringer.

Somewhere out there is the first stringer... Perhaps you should send him to look at Mel's company portrait.
