Conversation with a driver at a redlight during a recent bike ride:
Driver (woman in her 30s):" Excuse me, how old are you?"
Me: "50. Why do you ask?"
Driver "Just wondering." drives off.
Her tone was absolutely flat. No hint of condecension, flirtation, insult, or admiration. I have no idea whether I was being insulted, taunted, flattered, or flirted with.
