7 complementary


i cannot accept compliments. it's a physical condition. i make heinous faces and literally duck, as though the compliment were something sharp flung through the air which one must, at all costs, avoid.

it's bad.

i know this and i have been working on it, because we're supposed to be all grown up by now and an inability to accept a compliment as a grown-up isn't so much impressively humble as indecently ungracious.

slowly, progress is being made. there is now one compliment i can accept unabashedly and without ducking.

you are the fastest peer!

why, yes. thank you, yes, i am.

at first i thought this was like peer review editing or something. Then it dawned on me that perhaps it was not.

oline said...

yeah, that's a real spelling conundrum.

maybe what you are looking for is 'urinatrix?'

oline said...

oh, that is just BEYOND disgusting!

yeah, i hesitated posting but then i figured, this was the blog where you post quotes from the naked lady bar sessions and if anything this would be timid compared to that.

finally the horrifying crassness that is the naked lady bar gets acknowledged! and yes i cannot fault you for the word "urinatrix" after all our talk about dana going anal.
