(An 80 year old woman and her husband come up to the cutting counter with a bolt of sparkly, orange, see-through fabric.)

80 year-old woman: “Three yards please.”

Me, as I am measuring: “What are you using this for?”

80 year-old woman: “I am taking a belly dancing class, and I am going to make my own outfit.”

(I stare, and the man looks everywhere but his wife.)
