Today at work one of my coworkers motioned towards my face and told me I had a mustache. Horrified, I asked, "do you mean my freckle mustache?"
He said, "no you have some dirt on your lip."
"Thank goodness," I said as I wiped my lip on my shirtsleeve. I then explained that I have a freckle mustache of hyperpigmentation from 30-something hormones and sun damage and if that's what he meant I would be really embarrassed. He and two other male coworkers laughed. Awkwardly.
After I got home I replayed the scene in my head. When I wiped my lip on my shirtsleeve no dirt came off. They laughed a little TOO awkwardly. He WAS talking about my freckle mustache!!!
