new old sweater

I was at City Hall yesterday getting some forms. The guy behind me overheard me telling the clerk my street address.

guy:I live right next to you! I live on <nearby street>.
me:Wow. Actually I have some friends that live even closer to you, on <another street>.
guy:Cool. So, do your kids go to Fox Elementary?
me:(inwardly) WTF!!!
me:(outwardly, smiling politely) No, no kids.

I went home and decided it must have been my new Old Navy sweater making me look old, that made him ask that:

I'm now calling it my "old" sweater. (When I say this, the emphasis is totally different from when I say "old sweater".)
