No you aren't

"Hello, how are you?" I said to the two teenage girls who were walking in front of me and alternating peeks and giggling.

This prompted a look of shock from one, and bashful laughter from the other.

"Hi-eee!" she said awkwardly.

"I like your shirt," I replied, finding it hard to keep it to myself during the block I'd been looking at it.

"?" she said with her face.

I just smiled and passed them.

"Pure-f**kin' Canadian! 100%!" the shirt yelled again as I walked by.

That so?
