    I've certainly had my share of awkward conversational gambits.
    Nice tits wouldn't have worked either though so...

    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    I think that was my all time favorite.

    The guy was just very shy and tongue-tied and trying his best to catch my attention (which he did). While I said something innocuous and moved on to laugh it up with my friends out of earshot (I won't lie), I'm sure he died the death of a thousand cuts later replaying that encounter. I've done the same myself.

    Being an introvert but always surrounded by extroverts, I had to kind of teach myself how they interacted and I sometimes got it wrong early on. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt if the context clearly seems complimentary or enthusiastic. Sometimes, the expressions are pretty amazing if taken at face-value but they aren't intended that way.
    The other day my d-i-l was telling me how she had two freckles appear on her nose after a summer of river rafting even though she had been faithful to apply sunscreen and wear a sports cap. She went on and on and on fretting about these two minuscule spots while I intently listened. Then suddenly she abruptly stopped, smiled and said, not that there's anything wrong with freckles!
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    I used to do that all the time with one of my best friends...only it was about plucking the red hair out of my head...she's a redhead. She would just look at me and snap "I have red hair, you know"...and I'd snap back...and it's beautiful, but I'm a blonde, dammit!

    Growing up in a family of redheads and freckled blondes, I never had any bad feelings about being freckled. Other people sometimes tried to make me feel bad but it didn't stick with me since I saw freckled people all day long and they were fine. I never tried to cover them up or avoid them.

    I still have have them although facial freckles mostly fade off by the time you get into your 20s. I get a few in the summer on my nose but they are gone by Halloween. I honestly don't care.

    I did have one cousin who had unfortunate freckles and she went through hell at school. They were very, very large. Not dots but splotches like birthmarks. They faded off her face and hands over time and she became extremely stunning even though they persisted on her arms and legs.

    She didn't become stunning because the freckles faded, she just grew up to have the entire package of long legs, tight waist, pert breasts, and a beautiful face. She's still stunning. Loving husband, four kids, and a kind heart.
