As an aside, I notice that the actual note is written in a sort of half cursive/half printed script. I wonder what age that makes the writer?

I would guess she (meaning the younger of the two ladies) was in her early twenties. The older lady about 40ish. The kid was too young it seemed to write that legibly...

My traditional Zaner-Bloser script dates me, same as my parents' Palmer Method dates them. My 12 year old, on the other hand, can't seem to make a "4" so that it doesn't look like a "9," or a "0" that doesn't look like a "6".

As to the real subject at hand, at first I thought the whole note thing was a bit creepy, but now maybe I am softening my thoughts a little bit. At least it's much better than a nasty note!

Have to say that the way the note was worded did not convey any creepiness IMHO.  I thought it was pretty cool that a woman would want to compliment a guy in heels.  Also, if @chesterx had been a jerk in the driving part of this scene, the note would have either been not left or nasty in nature...lol.

I must be getting old, what does "You do you boo!" mean?

"You do you" means be yourself. Go ahead and do your thing.  Boo is a term of affection like dear or sweetheart, or baby.  I someone said hey boo, then it mostlikely means dear.  if they say "My boo", then it's most likely their significant other. 

Hope that helps.

Just the usual quick outings lately, and other than the occasional compliment, nothing much to say about them. In a first for me I lost possession of my phone while grocery shopping. I sat it down on the counter when I was paying for my smoothie. They sent an employee out into the store to find me and return it. Seems as though I am easy to remember for some reason...:chuckle:

It finally happened to me. Guess it was inevitable. Stopped off at the local mall to check out a sale at a boutique I have not been to before. Put on my David Charles wedges & off I went in search of the store. As I was looking around trying to find it I caught a seam in the pavement & "down goes Frazier". Geez, how embarrassing. Managed to even slip my foot out of the front of the shoe. Was only a few steps from my destination so I was able to limp inside & find a place to sit down & re-attach my shoe. A few people got a good laugh out of it, but otherwise no injuries, other than my ego that is...

It happens and there is nothing you can do about it.  My ankles were so bad that I could turn my ankle and go down over the smallest of pebbles in runners.  Three ankle reconstructions fixed my issues, but I have fallen since on a cobble stone type walkway in heels.

Love the reference to "down goes Frazier."  You must be "old" like me - ha ha.  For all the young'ins out there here is the clip, a classic from the Jan 1973 heavyweight fight between Joe Frazier and George Foreman.     

I have never taken tumble in my heels, but have been close a few times.  Glad you are / were OK.  Be safe, have fun....   sf

I have never taken a tumble due to uneven surfaces, but I've eaten it due to a low coefficient of friction, and right in front of people, no less. The plastic heel tips that are OEM equipment on many shoes can be treacherous on polished flooring! Once replaced with hard rubber, no problem, unless snow and ice are involved.

Yeah, a slippery smooth floor has taken me out also

It also happened to me in a hotel. The wooden soil in the bar was unexpectedly slippery. Same as you no physical pain but a bruised ego. I sat in the less noticeable place and it took long before I got up again. Never a beer has taken such a long time to be swallowed.
