underestimate

I've just been asked for ID buying wine (and other things) at the Co-op. To be asked whether one is over 18, a week or so before one turns 28, is flattering, I suppose. But I was feeling all grown up and sophisticated in my new coat and favourite boots. The woman at the cash desk was apologetic and decided it was a sign she was getting old.

Take it as a compliment love. It just goes to show how good you look - the new improved you.
New coat - you bought one then. Tell me more

It's knee-length, light grey, with a pointy collar, 4 big buttons down the front and pockets with false buttoned flaps. It was an Oxfam bargain at £6.99.
