A well-placed remark

by Rebecca A. Watson on June 28, 2008

in compliments, hats, skull

“You have a nice skull shape,” she said to me. I am taken aback. What does that even mean? Apparently she thinks I’m one of the few people that can pull of a head scarf. And so she tells me.

Those are the kind of compliments you don’t forget. “I like your outfit” or “You’re a good dancer” are nice compliments but you tend to mush them all together in the back of your head where they float around and you don’t refer to them often.

The weird ones are great. I’ll never put on a hat or scarf (both of which I do often) without thinking about it. And even though I doubt this person will be a large part of my life, she will be forever in my mind.
