All My Compliments Come With Asterisks

A 20 year old female coworker said a really nice thing to me the other day. And then she kept talking. I had been parking cars at the workplace in the rain, and so I had taken off my glasses so I wouldn't have to keep drying them off every 10 minutes. ANYWAY, she comes up to me and says, "You know, you're really cute...without your glasses." OK, I pretty much have to wear my glasses all the time. And I wonder what I look like with my glasses.

So what do I look like pretty much all the time? Hmmm, hear another thing another female coworker said under the guise of a compliment. To a friend of mine she said, "I think Mike's pretty cool afterall; I used to think he was a nerd until I got to know him better."

Two ways to look at this. Either too bad I have to wear glasses or thank God I'm married and don't have to worry about looking cool anymore.

Haha. This post really cracked me up! And what a perfect title for it! I'm sure you have other photos on here, but the only one I have seen so far is the one you just posted with your baby. Very nice! I think you're a cutie. And I'm sure that those other women thought so too - even with the glasses! Sometimes compliments don't quite come out the way we want them to.
