Daily Prompt: Awkward
“I smile because you’re my Daughter, then I laugh because there’s nothing you can do about it!” Unknown
Have you ever had one of those awkward moments when someone says something and you have to hold your breath for the explosion to happen? Here’s an example of what I mean.
I was with my daughter and her family on Friday. We had gone to see the play my grandsons were in at their school. Following the play, which was really cute by the way, we all went out to lunch.
We are sitting at the table when our waitress asked my daughter if she and I were sisters. Now, I don’t think that we look the same age, but apparently either she is looking older or I am looking younger. I prefer to think the latter.
I held my breath until I was sure my daughter was not going to blow up at the waitress. Thankfully she has a great sense of humor and just shrugged it off. However, for a second or two it was a little tense at our table.
The thing is, just the week before at my granddaughter’s dance competition the same thing happened to us. So clearly me losing weight, wearing makeup again, and dressing like I belong in this century has made me look younger. That’s my story and I am sticking to it. 🙂

Taking compliments is hard (at least it is for me) and you should bask in this momentary – slightly awkward – glory.

I am! :). Thanks for commenting.
I love that you got the compliment and think your daughter should too. I’d love it if my mother and I had that kind of compliment because she looks wonderful for her age and I hope to be like her as I grow older. 🙂
