I've never been very good at taking compliments.
It's not your normal "Oh stop. You're too much!" reaction. There's no blushing or coy smile.
I usually just play it off with an "Of course I am!"
Last night, Mary told me that I looked pretty and I laughed.
"No, really! You have a glow tonight!"
"Maybe I'm pregnant, now, too! Can you help me out? Can I move in?"
That got quite a laugh, but it probably would've been better of me to just say "Thank you!"
What's great about Tom and Mary is I think that if I really did need it, they'd do anything they could to help. They are a great family and have gone above and beyond in helping others.
ps--I'm totally totally not pregnant. It was just a joke. I repeat: It was just a joke!
