She stared at my awaiting paw like it was a dead rat. I just stood there, arm out, smiling awkwardly. Finally, after an excruciating wait, she gingerly cupped a couple of fingers and mincingly wiggled my hand.
Haha, that must've been an awkward situation, I feel for you ;D
My dad taught me that you ALWAYS take a proffered hand, even from Satan himself.
Of course, that girl was either rude or weird :P Or you somehow caught her by surprise and she was in some utter shock, I really don't know how to explain this xD
You always shake an extended hand, always - it's just basic manners ;)
