In the morning, someone says, “Those sunglasses are cool. They make you look like Cate Blanchett… on a bad day.”

Later, the young supervisor at pilates plays something by One Direction. It’s unfamiliar. Then, something else: “Surely you’ve heard this one.”

Nope.

“I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t know One Direction,” she says.

I’d say this day was one full of compliments.
