Handing Off the Torch

We crossed the busy street to get to the bus. His band mate is standing on the other corner getting ready to cross in the other direction, coming toward us. “Oh man. He always gets the cute groupies.” Did he just call me a groupie? Did he just call me cute? Am I pissed or flattered? Or both? It‘s just an interview. I know now how it looks for any woman to be hanging out with a guy in a band. I’m extra cautious from that point on.
