When I lived in Vancouver, I went to the local video store for a movie. The same guy was always behind the till. He looked quite dangerous, sort of like a Hell's Angel. Anyway, it was the day after halloween and as he put my movie in a bag I noticed he had pink fingernail polish on. I realized he must have been celebrating Halloween so I said, "Did you have a good time last night?"
He stood stock still, stared at me and asked in a whisper, "Why? Were you there? What did I do?"
I could see he was nervous, so I said, "No, no. I just noticed the fingernail polish."
Relief flooded his face and he smiled. "Oh, yeah! I did have a good time."
Poor guy; I had him scared there for a minute.
