"You're all baby" - of course I didn't know what it meant at the time, though now it is blaringly obvious. I just smiled. The stranger must have thought I was being rude. I wish I could go back and say a big "Thank you" to her. It's nice when people compliment you, especially when you feel like a ten ton whale.
One from my partner when he read one of my theatre reviews a few months ago:
"Must say that I am really impressed with the article. Your creativity and way with words shines through. I am pleased to hear that your article has been successful. It was an excellent piece. I was surprised that you had the concentration to write such quality at that time of night."
