(Did I mention I'd be writing a lot this week?)
I received some fabulous flattery today…
It was perfect, to me, not only because of what was said but who delivered it. She knows me like the back of her hand and her opinion of me is one of only a handful that truly matters. Everyone else…you know how it is. I am who I am and I don’t plan to changed much at this point in my life. Probably couldn’t even if I tried but there’s really no desire. I’m not terribly offensive anyway, at least a majority of the time.
So when Susie, “my sister from another mister”, paid me this compliment today, on the golf course, no less, I burst into a smile so wide my cheeks hurt. Or maybe it was because of the side splitting laughing fit we just had over something ridiculous, VERY stupid and not at all repeatable. Not everyone appreciates my humor the way she does and likewise.
Susie said, “You’ve raised your level of sassiness lately. I absolutely love it!”
“Thank you! I'm so proud.”
“I mean, you really were before but I don’t know what’s your deal. And I’m not being sassy either. You're kinda crazier."
Ok, I’ll keep it up anything as long as someone is amused.
Attitude, in large doses, has never been an issue for either one of us so I was very appreciative of this acknowledgement and my recent efforts of late. She claims it’s been since my birthday. Go figure.
I wonder. Who would win a “Sass-Off” between the two of us?
I know she can beat me in arm wrestling but I think I’ve got her here.
Am I the only one who would take this as a compliment?
Right back atcha, Sister!!!
