I was having a triumphant morning commute– sun out, moonroof thingy open, stereo turned up loud (Rick Fuckin’ Springfield, thank you)– and my mind wandered to a random thought: of any and all compliments I’ve ever received over the course of my life, two stand out in particular. (I’ve lost count of the insults.)
So please allow me a little ego love fest here. (It IS my page, after all.)
The first one: “He is the most unpretentious person I’ve ever met.” –Steve Domingo (roommate), to my mom– circa 1994
The second: “It must be fun to be you!” –Froggy, 2002.
The best part is that neither of them knew it at the time, and neither of them probably remember it now. But these two sentences have a permanent residence in my head. Which is something.
