Comebacks (1)

This is a postscript to "Lost words," below.

The theater in question is in a formerly decrepit city neighborhood that in recent years has become somewhat chic. As we were in our seats waiting for the curtain, I turned to the friend I was with and said: "You know, walking around outside just now I saw some hot people. And I don't mean 'hot' as in 'hot and sweaty.'"

To which my friend replied: "You don't get out much, do you?"
