True Story

On my way from the store to the parking lot tonight, an old man was walking with a cane on the same sidewalk towards me in the opposite direction. We had not come close enough to each other yet to nod and say hello, but as we walked closer and I was preparing to make my obligatory polite nod and hello, the man speaks.

I swear to god this is exactly what he said. I recount this event with absolutely no hyperbole whatsover. These words actually left the old man's mouth:

"Oooh, la, la. That's a nice shirt."

I've never laughed so hard while walking alone in a parking lot ever.
