"Miss T., they were talking about you," he said very seriously as he pulled me aside in the line.
"Oh really? What did 'they' say?"
He cleared his throat, stammered a little...
"It's okay, you won't be in trouble if you tell me."
"Well...they said...that your eyes were like emeralds."
"Oh," I said very importantly. "Thank you for letting me know."
"And they said you were ugly."
Ah, if only they had stopped at the emerald part... :)
