Flattery will get you a punch in the face

This morning George chuckled over the comics. “Dilbert is pretty funny today.” After a pause he added, “She reminds me of you.”

I hadn’t read Dilbert yet, so I didn’t know whether his comment constituted a compliment or an insult. George had already left for the day when I checked it out. Here’s what I saw:


Ha! I love her! And every time I think about George’s comment I laugh. I’m not sure that’s a good thing, but at least he was laughing, too.

Can’t wait to hear what happens to George when you regain the element of surprise. 😉

I thought I was the one who doesn’t listen well?

Dearer friend, gentle lamb,
Don’t you remember? I told you why Alice reminded me of you! It is her confidence in knowing what she likes and doesn’t like; her taking action, being decisive. And she’s confident in what is just and in her leadership qualities.

Re: I thought I was the one who doesn’t listen well?

Yes, I remember (as you well know, unless you weren’t listening *wink*). But that’s not what made me laugh, so I didn’t mention it. Now I’m laughing again because you just said Alice is confident in what is just. Good old Alice, the paragon of justice. Leadership through punching. Oh, man.

You’re sweet, George. Thanks for holding a high opinion of my confidence, decisiveness, justice, and leadership qualities. And thanks for making me laugh, too.

Actually, he just got points for making me laugh. Lucky for George he doesn’t charge high prices or wear a ridiculous comb-over!

Thanks. This is what you have to look forward to after 28 years of marriage. (I love being a good example to younger wives.)

Don’t worry, Heather. Unless you start wearing an irritating hairstyle between now and then.
