During a study break (in college) I was hanging out with friends. One of the girls came over and sat next to me. "I envy you," she said. "Um, why?" I figured maybe it was because I just got a new cell phone or something like that.
"I envy you because of your body. Your figure reminds me of those women in those paintings in the cathedrals all over Europe. There's so much detail and emphasis on the beauty of their bodies. People have studied and lingered over those paintings for years, admiring them. With my shape most people only look at it for roughly five seconds and then move on. I wish I had a better shape like yours."
This coming from a girl who has done modeling. I was completely blown away by her comment. But I do admit I walked a little bit taller that day!
This happened a few years ago and I don't know what made me think of it but it really made me smile and I wanted to pass the compliment on!
