how to take a compliment.

thank you.

and, if you can bear it, smile genuinely.

do not flinch. do not turn away. do not say nooooooo, no, no, no, no, no, noooooo, bat your eyelashes and hide behind your chantilly lace fan. do not react as if complimenter has just hurled a baker's dozen of rotten tomatoes at your face in rapid succession.

why is that so hard to do?


but i'm workin' on it.

i think maybe if they change it to accepting a compliment as opposed to take. take seems so,

thank you.

and i'm smiling. really. i am.
