a younger man

The other day while in the market, I was approached by a gentleman of about 8 years old. 

He nonchalantly struck up a conversation with me about pistachios. I complimented him on his haircut. He said it was new, but he wasn't quite sure how he felt about it yet. You see, everyone kept mistaking it for a mohawk when it so clearly was not.

I told him he was quite mature for his age. He nodded his headed in knowing agreement.

He was in the middle of describing his favorite book when his mother approached. 

"Are you flirting?" she asked.

"Yes," he replied, with a confidence far beyond his years.

I laughed aloud and told him he wasn't supposed to admit to it. He simply shrugged and grinned.

I do hope the engineer doesn't mind all this attention I am getting from a younger man.
