An older male shouted at me while I walked on the sidewalk of my suburb:

“You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen! I’m gonna call TMZ to let them know we have celebrities here!”

And as I was walking quickly away, he added: “And she has a nice ass too!”

The worst part was that I smiled and nodded at him when he first spoke, a product of my nerves and discomfort that frustrates me every time it comes out. I wish I could always have a curt comeback, but sometimes I panic and don’t.
