OOTD: When A Hobo Calls You Cool


When A Hobo Calls You Cool

It’s often hard to take a compliment, but sometimes getting a compliment in a funny situation, makes you smile more than the kind words themselves. Let me explain, I was with my photographer, Sam, when a rather dishevelled looking man came up to us, he was holding a can of beer (bare in mind it’s about 2pm at this point) and he looked at me and said ‘you look cool!’. I nervously said ‘thank you Sir, that’s very kind of you!’. He walked away, turned around and said ‘Yehhh! You look really cool. Like a rock star!’. At which point I started to laugh and again, thanked him. Sam and I were still laughing as we resumed taking photos and it kept us smiling all afternoon and all the way through our powdered hot chocolate in Costa Coffee later on. So, if you are reading this post and thinking ‘WTF is she wearing?’, that’s ok, because a drunk man in Margate, thought I looked cool and that’s fine with me!
