I got two hair compliments yesterday. A double header. I was wearing my hair in a braid. We were at Denny's restaurant paying our bill, well, husband was paying the bill. I was sitting on the sofa. And a young waitress, she was cashiering, told me my hair was long and pretty. Wowie kazowie. Often people will say, "Your hair is long," and I say, "It is." I'm not sure if "thank you" would be appropriate. It's more like they're making a statement of fact, not complimenting. So anyways, it was great to get a no-bones-about-it compliment. And that's not all. Another sweet waitress sat down beside me, like a friend only I think she was just really tired, and started talking about how pretty it is and she added that not all women can wear my color of hair and look good. I was really wondering if she was a long hair person. She said she liked the color of my hair very much.
They were the nicest compliments I've gotten in a long time. I walked out of the restaurant positively beaming. I told my husband how happy I was and he said, "Oh?" as he looked at the receipt from breakfast. I said, duh, you know they gave me nice compliments. As if! And then he says, "Well, you do have beautiful hair." And I told him he doesn't know anything. He's just a husband. And he threw his hands up exasperation.
