One of the best bits I ever did was in the Safeway checkout.
I have a friend who has a number of strange friends - weird dudes. Not bad people. Just different. I am also acquainted with these people.
I saw my friend's son one day, with his wife, in the checkout line. They were ahead of me. Our conversation somehow got around to the atypical people his dad associates with.
I said, "Your dad DOES hang around with some bizarre people."
They agreed, chuckled and looked away. And then, about 2 seconds later, in unison, they snapped their heads back towards me with raised eyebrows, expecting me to say exactly what I said.
"Aaaand, I suppose I'm one of 'em!"
It made them happy.
