I had received the aliyah immediately prior, and quickly turned to him and offered my tallis, which he gladly accepted and proceeded to make his berachos and receive his aliyah.
Some combination of the excitement/energy of the moment, along with the shiny metal plated atara (crown) of my tallis called to mind an image from my youth that perfectly suited the moment. I managed to track down the source and created this nifty animated gif.
Yes, it feels exactly like that. For all the male, unmarried readers - just wait until the first time a single guy asks to borrow your own tallis.
In case you're wondering what they're saying, here's the caption:
Red Ranger: Quick, Tommy, I need to borrow your tallis!
Green Ranger: Don't worry, Jason! Here you go!
Red Ranger: Totally Morphinominal! Thanks, bro!
Green Ranger: Anytime, man!
P.S. I apologize for the lack of regular updates. Now that the chagim are over, I hope to get back into things. I've missed writing about so many topics - Teshuva Season, Yomim Noraim, Sukkos, my 3rd Blogoversary...
