Last Sunday, wearing a black dress, I went to the hardware store to buy a broom. On the way to the car, carrying my new broom, I was approached by a guy trying to sell funny jelly candles out of a black plastic packet. Before he could even open his mouth I lifted my hand and said, “No thank you”.
As I walked on he called after me, “No problem, Miss. Hope it flies well”. It was the sharpest, most unexpected comeback I’d ever heard. I chuckled and cackled all the way home.
