It was hot and steamy. A typical Northern Virginia day. Ray and I were dragging around the lake. A 20 something girl was approaching. As she neared, she got a smile on her face.
"Nice..," she said.
I started to swell with pride as I usually do when someone is complimenting my dog.
"...shorts," she finished.
I deflated a bit but then realized I, myself, had just received a compliment from a YOUNG person.
I spent the rest of the walk wondering if she was being sarcastic.
I really don't want to be seen with her but she's holding the leash.
