He went to rearrange the flower display outside the grocery store and found her sitting on a bench waiting for her ride home.  She smiled at him and said hello; he said 'hi' back, then tried to think of something else to say to keep her engaged.


"It's really nice out today, but I have to watch when it's too sunny, my head burns, because, you know I'm bald."


He turned his attention to a group of asters, disappointed by the lack of a response, when she softly said, "I think bald men are sexy".


The potted plant slipped out of his hand and crashed to the ground.  He crouched to pick it up, a broad smile spreading across his face as she got up and walked towards the car at the curb.
