When my godson was about six months old, I remember first seeing his eyes light up, a smile cross his face and his little arms reach for me when I walked in. Now he's 12, and last week when I went to visit, he looked up from his video game, his eyes lit up with that same smile, he put the game down (!), jumped up and hugged me, saying, "it's always so cool to see you."
"You look like a young Courtney Love" < Because nothing beats being told you look like a crack *****
Ouch. I used to think she was hot though for whatever that's worth.
Hahaha... I got Tori Spelling! (but the guy was drunk)
That I am a good mother
A man who had every reason to compliment me only on my body and my looks complimented me on my writing. I was thrilled that he liked both my body AND my mind.
You are fortunate. I have come across a few men who were threatened by my intelligence. No brag, just fact :)
When I was in high school I was in the drama club. We put on a musical and I played the piano, out of sight from the audience with the rest of the musicians. After the show, our director was approached by an audience member who said "The kids did an amazing job! They followed that soundtrack perfectly!" (keep in mind, this was some of the most difficult piano I've had to play). The director responded with "Thank you, but that was a live band, not a recording." The audience member couldn't believe it.
Whoa! That's impressive. :o
Pat Nixon, when she was first lady, sent me a very nice letter commending me for work I did in the disaster releif of an earthquake in Peru in 1970.
Were you in the navy/marines?
That I'm a good dad. That was back when I was acting as dad for my now ex girlfriend's daughter. I sure miss that sweety pie...
I had that experience. Pat yourself on the back again sir.
From my Father - 'you didn't make a bad a job of that as I expected'
I'd love to hear that from my dad but he'd passed away.
I used to conduct orchestras and after a performance with a Bulgarian orchestra one of the lead pla<x>yers said to me ''I don't know what you're doing or how you're doing it, but when you conduct us we sound like a different orchestra''.
You're the type of girl who's hard to find. So I'm sure as hell lucky to have you.
Sometime around my 25th anniversary I asked my wife why she married me. She said the sex was just too good!
"You're weird." best compliment ever. :)
"You know... you're pretty funny for a po white boy." Wow thanks grandma.
I would have to say that it was when someone, after having met me in another place than this, wrote of me, "I met a man today, glorious and frightening."
Wow. That makes you one of the most interesting people on my list!
lmao high five
glorious and frightening eh? were you painted and did you have a mane?
"You've got the sweetest lips I've ever encountered"
mmmmmm sure is a fantastic compliment
"Your kids are great because of what you do for them and how you love them. They love you because of that.
They say when someone is drunk, they tell you how they truly feel. Well once at a work holiday party, one of my bosses told my husband, "That Sara sure is a smart cookie!" Ha.. But imagine it more drunken and slurred.
I was in line at the grocery store getting last minute stuff to watch my cowboys play Minnesota. I was about thirty longish blonde hair bearded construction worker and an older lady 70 maybe said I looked like a Viking. Of course I've never seen ugly or puny Vikings so my ego took it as a compliment. I said" thank you".
How ironic that you got the compliment the day your team was playing those strong attractive players. Do you remember if they won?
I before e except after c. Please pass 2nd grade then get back to me.
Either you receive some really weird compliments, or you think that "received" is spelled wrong. It isn't. If I were you, I'd pass second grade too.
That's American English for ya
I before e except after c unless the word is weird, accuracies, agreeing, Fahrenheit, proficient, rein, reinforce, heifer, caffeine, insufficient, species, leisure, deity, meiosis, weigh, either, emergencies, or zoo-theism just to name a few.
A tip of the hat to you Miss. I'm impressed. (I know big whoop)Cool.
or when sounded as A as in neighbor or weigh ..thats a story for another day I guess
this is not about spelling... I am guessing you are an English teacher or what ever... but you did not have to comment it is not that serious
I'm not an English teacher I'm a 16 year old girl still in high school who, believe it or not, DID pass 2nd grade and was amused by your accusations when you didn't even know yourself :3
When my son posted on his MySpace that I was his hero.
