Nice Things

One of my favorite blogs is Whoopee. She is hilarious and fun. I always put on my rubber pants before reading her blog. You should definitely read the post about the toy bus. So funny!
Anyway, I am stealing her idea for a post about 'the nicest things people have said to me.'
So here are some of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me.

"You are going to be such a good Mom."
My incredible friend Sherie, right after being a model for a drawing class I was teaching. I was stunned and cried a little.

"You are such a f***ing good painter."
By a great painter and friend, Frank Bruckmann.

"You're a freak
Dr. Rinaldi, college English teacher, when I got a perfect score on a grammar test. He said this again at my commencement ceremony in front of the whole school. Embarrassing, but nice.

"You're beautiful"
Mark, when I was gritty and worn out after painting all day outside.

I am sure there are so many more I could list if I didn't have such a bad memory. So I apologize to anyone I left out.

So, tell me, what are some nice things anyone has ever said to you?

My mother said I looked beautiful once. She has said a few of my photographs were beautiful, etc, but that was probably just Mom being Mom. You were probably kind enough to flatter a photo or would-be portrait of mine.

Nice. I especially love the "You're a freak"...and "Your so beautiful". Good idea...I may borrow it.
