Today, as a woman passed me in the ladies room, she said "Nice roots."
I quickly looked in the mirror to check my "roots" and found that I had my sunglasses on my head, so I wondered how she even saw my roots. I couldn't help but think how rude it was for her to tell me I had "roots."
I told myself she must have said something else. Who would say that? No, I heard it pretty well. She just passed by me and said "Nice roots."
I have to admit it was pretty odd, but I didn't think about it anymore until later that day when I got home and took off my coat and as I bent down to unzip my boots it dawned on me that she had given me a compliment "Nice boots."
I think I may need a hearing aide.
