Last Night I was paid one of the best compliments possible- that I'm entertaining and fun.
Of course I had to relay this immediately to the husband as hard evidence that I am indeed hilarious. His response, “I know you’re entertaining, that’s why I married you.” I didn’t see that coming. The husband is short on flattery, and has never told me that I’m fun, entertaining or otherwise. He does tell me frequently that he thinks I’m beautiful. Which I appreciate, but not as much as I like to be told how fun or cleaver I am. When I realized:
I’d rather be kind than fun. I’d rather be fun than smart. I’d rather be smart than rich. I’d rather be rich than beautiful.
I’m curious as to what others rank themselves: Fun, Kind, Smart, Rich, Beautiful, and anything else I may have forgotten. Not only what do you rank as your favorite compliments, but what does that say about you?
