...a gentleman I was having relations with sent me an email one morning that read, "I saw you at Kroger last night."
I responded, "You did? Why didn't you say something?"
He said, "I nodded."
He was confused when I responded, among other things, "Don't you ever nod at me again like I'm some common stranger."
"Gentleman" is what we say when it's not quite what we mean.
