back-handed compliment

I was walking along Western Road yesterday, and this guy approached me making serious eye-contact.

I tried to tune out from what he was saying and intended to just walk on by, but one word rang out that completely threw me off guard - "paintball".

He asked again "When was the last time you played paintball?"
me: "er, when I was 15"
him: "when you were 15? How old are you now?"
me: "32"

I walked on. He called after me something about having a "babyface"...

When I got home, I made sure to check the portrait in the attic.
