The scene plays out at work, where I am already feeling a little discombobulated.
Little old lady: (flatly) You look like Cher.
Me: That's nice. I get Lilly Tomlin a lot too.
Little old lady: No. You look like Cher......only better.
Me: Well, that IS nice, thank you. I wish I had her body.
Little old lady: Cher wishes she looked like you, at her age.
Me: She's had a lot of work done. Even Cher doesn't look like Cher anymore.
Little old lady: I suppose that's true. YOU look like Cher though. (shoves her packages into her cart and exits briskly)
I'm a little conflicted about this compliment.
