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.
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.
