I just remembered - when I was out on my birthday / pride, I had an old 70s SLR over my shoulder with a kaleidescope filter on the front, and the number of randoms I had coming to ask about it was off the scale.

Had a nice chat with an older gent in the park this morning who said

Don’t be so vulgar.

I used to get a LOT of comments about my youngest’s hair when I would be out and about with her as a toddler (it’s very bright red). Absolute strangers, often but not always old ladies, would stop me in the supermarket or the park to tell me how red it was.
I saw a picture of Rik Mayall’s coffin somewhere online the other day, and someone had commented “I bet he’s wearing a smashing blouse in there”. (smilingbutsad emoji)
