I Feel Pretty

Last night after the neighborhood meeting, Caleb and I were over at Blue Cloud chewing the fat with a couple of neighbors. I was telling Pat about Breeding Discontent and she was all happy for me. Pat is around 60, maybe older, an independent, fun-loving type, and was actually actor Richard Mulligan's first wife. Anyway as I was talking, she all of a sudden smiles at me and says, "You know, you have such a beautiful, beautiful face." I kind of floundered and said, "Oh, thanks, Pat," and she said "No, no, I was just looking at you and you know, you are really, really beautiful. I hope you know that." I smiled and said thanks. She winked at me and said, "I just have to tell you, being one of your elders and all... Sometimes people go too long without anybody saying that." LOL. That is *so* my mother, who likes to say things to me like "Oh, kid, you're so pretty, it's really a shame that..." (Yeah, you can guess the ... portion. She isn't a nagger but she does get concerned for me now and then. Good thing she already has 7 grandkids.)
