    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. smile

      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!
