ruthless compassion

Today, on my way to the doctor's office for a TB test, a woman walking with a big stroller called out to me, "You look great!" She said this in the tone of voice you would use to comment on the appearance of someone you know but haven't seen in a long time, and who looked really fantastic. But I didn't recognize her, and I think I've never seen her before in my life.

Is this the straight girl version of the street pickup attempt, or is it just a little bit of random inserted into my day for entertainment?

(Note: I look okay today, but that's as far as I'd go.)
