"I don't want to appear nosey, but that is such a pretty suit you have on; how much did you pay down on it?"

"Somebody told me that you have made a log of money in the chinchilla business. How much do you have in the bank now?"

"You don't look like you are as old as they say you are. How old are you?"

"You look like you have gained a lot of weight lately. How much do you weigh now?"

"Is it true that the finance company repossessed your teeth or did you leave them in a bus station somewhere?"

Friend, I am glad you are not nosey, but you want to exercise caution. A fellow could start where you are and get nosey very quick.
