The strangest compliment I ever received was when some guy at Mardi Gras told me that I had sexy armpits. (If that sounds familiar it is because I mentioned it before here.)
The second strangest compliment I ever got came courtesy of my daughter. It happened just this morning.
I was changing out of my pajamas (read: the shirt I wore yesterday and slept in and a pair of sweatpants) into clean clothes and Claudia and I were discussing what I was going to wear today. I was putting on a clean pair of underpants when She laid this one on me –
“Mommy, you have a big pagina!”
(That isn’t a typo, she and her brother both call them paginas.)
“Your pagina is humongous!”
Keep in mind this is the girl who has also praised me for having such a big butt.
What is the strangest compliment anyone has ever given you?
There is a SATGS key chain bottle opener in it for the person who makes me laugh the hardest.
Edited to Add This :
I completely forgot about a fantastic compliment I got last week from Count Waffles the Terrible. I just cut and pasted this e-mail from his Mom:
…was asking me today about how babies get in bellies. And somehow this lead to a discussion of how TWO babies can get in bellies. So I, of course, went with the whole Claudia and Ian discussion.
After much back and forth, Jack decided that the ONLY reason Auntie Sarah had TWO babies was because “she’s the smartest person in the world about stomachs” and “only really, super smart people know enough to have two babies in their stomach.”
Yeah. I AM THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE WORLD ABOUT STOMACHS. Beat that!
