I went to see U2 in concert. Halfway through their show, I felt tired, closed my eyes, and fell asleep. When I awoke, the stadium was empty.

I walked out to the parking lot and got in my car. As I was pulling out, I noticed Bono, the lead singer of U2, smoking a cigarette outside his limousine.

I pulled up next to the limo. I said, “I’m sorry I fell asleep during your show.”

Bono said, “Not to worry. It’s nice you felt that relaxed.”

I said, “I think your music is like a lullaby.”

Bono said, “That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.”

I said goodbye and drove home. I felt badly because I didn’t mean what I said as a compliment.
