What is the strangest compliment you've ever received?
I'll even start. I was once complimented on the shape of my knuckles by an elderly woman who I was ringing out at my old store.
That I have pretty feet. This was strange because the foot is not very pretty.
As a woman, believe me when I say if a woman goes to the trouble to compliment your feet, be assured they are indeed attractive!
It was kind of weird, someone I had never met before told me I look like a certain celebrity, and what she didn't know is that celebrity happens to be a cousin. And the truth is, I have never once noticed any resemblance between us.
No. And I didn't mean to open a can of worms, lol. Let's just say she's an actress of some fame and leave it there? Thanks!
Obviously, you are not going to tell us.......but my guess is: Sondra Kerr Blake (married to actor Robert Blake, many years ago)
One time we had dinner guests. After eating a plate of ribs, one of the guests told me I'm "magical". LOL
From my late father-in-law when I was taking care of him after his hip surgery. I quote, "You're so efficient, I can't stand it!"
I replied, "Thank you." Because I wasn't so favored in his eyes, that statement meant a lot to me. During the month I was with him, I think I had earned his respect, and that felt good.
LOL...JG & JT......Congratulations on your nice knuckles and pretty feet! It's always nice to be noticed for something!.........I don't know if this qualifies as a "compliment," but numerous people have told me I scare them, because I seem to clearly "read minds."
The reality is (I think) that I focus on the person speaking to me, pay attention to what they are saying, to include body language.....and somehow, I'm able to anticipate their next question or comment, spot-on.........I believe it's that simple. If I could TRULY read minds, I'd be on stage in Vegas, making a boatload of money! Damn it!

What was the best compliment you ever received?I would assume compliments might be phrased the same, yet they won't have the same effect on people. It all depends, doesn't it? What is your story? No matter how ordinary or unimaginative a compliment might have sounded, how did it...
