Of course that doesn’t roll off the tongue as well as ‘She’s got Betty Davis Eyes’, but this is my blog so whatever.
Today I was actually told I have legs like Audrey Hepburn. I kid you not. There I was waiting for my order of fries and Doc Brown’s Cream Soda (don’t judge me) in a local eatery, minding my own business when…
“Excuse me.” Said the cutest granny looking lady I ever saw. No, not even my grandma is this cute. In fact my grandma is a card shark. Don’t play with her unless you want to leave the game crying. This goes for nice and easy card games like Uno people. No joke. Anyway…
Cute Granny Lady: I hope you don’t mind me saying but you have the perfect legs for ballet flats.
Me: Um, thank you. (Then I notice I AM wearing ballet flats, so not so weird after all.)
Cute Granny Lady: Really, they remind me of Audrey Hepburn. Great in a skirt or I bet even in those capri pants too!
Me: (ok this just got a little weird) Your very sweet, thank you.
Counter lady: Order 571!
Me: Bingo! (I did not actually say this out loud. But I did get my order, and thank the granny looking lady again for her compliment and told her to have a nice day.)
I bet the nice lady wouldn’t have thought my legs were very Hepburn like if she’d seen me almost go ass over tea kettle on my run to beat the rain back to work. Nope that was far from graceful. When I got back to the office I couldn’t help but think that while it was a weird comment, it was still the nicest thing someone had said to me all day. So I rode out how awesome it made me feel the rest of the day.
I even felt the need to take pictures of my legs when I got back to the office, you know like non normal people do.
Which now I think I need to buy ALL the ballet flats, skirts, and capri pants I can find. I also need to cut my hair shorter. I think I could rock Ms. Hepburn’s shorter do. However, I’m pretty sure my husband will not love that. He’d love it if my I could “cut my hair longer”. Right. Check it out…I’m pretty sure Ms. Hepburn’s hair is shorter than mine.
And here’s my hair today…
In all seriousness many thanks to the lovely lady who gave me such a nice compliment, it really brightened my day.
Nothing else really happened today. At least I don’t think it did…
