Me: What's up Muscles?
Boy: Hey Mr. Mac (as he looks down admiringly at his biceps).
Me: Have you been working out?
Boy: (still staring at his muscles) Yeah...I've been using a shake weight.
My mouth dropped with this response, it was the most amazing thing I had heard all day. Not only WAS he working out, but he exuded such extreme confidence in his response, as if to say "Hells yes, you could look like me if you had the discipline." I had to stoke this fire of self-assurance.
Me: Looking strong dude, keep it up.
