Last week, I received the absolute best compliment I could ever receive- a friend of mine told me that I reminded him of “Alice”. Now, if you know me there is only one Alice in my life, and she visited a place called Wonderland and was created by Lewis Carroll. Before I got too excited, I made sure he meant my Alice and he told me he did. At that point I pretty much just blissed out because it’s basically the nicest thing you could ever say to me.
So, now I’m thinking about compliments because in general I’m not too good at receiving them (they make me uncomfortable) but this made me feel so unbelievably happy. Which is silly, I know, but it did. So now I’m thinking- wait, is this what I’ve been missing all these years? Compliments are wonderful! But then I think about other compliments I’ve received and those didn’t make me happy, they just made me feel more awkward than usual. So, I guess it’s just certain types of compliments. It probably makes sense that only strange and obscure compliments would make me happy.
Anyway, I’m thinking about compliments and I’m wondering what other people consider to be the best compliment they ever received. And I’m thinking about writing a blog about what I discover. So- what was the best compliment you ever received?
Also, sorry this post isn’t funny. I’m in a curious mood. Curiouser and curiouser. 🙂
