Let’s lighten the mood a bit, shall we…
(Thank you for all your love after reading my last post.)
Dear Chris (age 19),
A simple thank you will suffice. (Also…try believing too.)
The first time a boy ever told me I was pretty, I was a junior in college. He was a good friend of mine, a couple of years younger (not uncommon for me to be popular with the “younger” set…see Day 17) and he was super cute, talented, the works. I had a bit of a crush.
We were having dinner together in our college cafeteria and right in the middle of a perfectly nice conversation, he just looked at me and said… “You’re really pretty.”
This was before I learned (10+ years later) how to take a compliment.
I said, “Uh…Thanks. You’re pretty too.”
(Cue sigh. Internally smack self in forehead with open palm.)
