I'm soooo beautiful!

When I was young, my mother told me "You either have looks or you have brains. Few people have both."

I'm sure that she was trying to tell me that -- in her eyes at least -- I was both pretty and smart. But she never really clarified this.

Many years later, I made the mistake of telling The Husband this story. I ended it by saying "and my mother never told me which one I was".

Big mistake!

To this day, whenever I do something stupid (and believe me when I say this happens a lot!) he turns to me, and with his Serious Face, says "You're so beautiful."

Ha! My hubby says the same thing to me. He usually pets my hair while saying it. "You're so pretty," pat, pat... Jerkface.
