When I was about 15 years old I remember sitting in the audience of a concert my grandparents were playing in (trumpet and piano). I could overhear the couple behind me quietly arguing with each other about ME! The man was saying "Of course they are real, what do you mean dear?" while the woman was getting louder and louder exclaiming, "Who would let a child wear false eyelashes? What kind of parents do you suppose she has?" back and forth until I finally turned around and said "They are REAL!" I don't think either of them expected a reply to their bickering and I don't think they even realized they could be overheard. I was annoyed and embarrassed, not accepting the underlying compliment I think I was receiving.
