Good-looking car

As I parked outside the bookbinders this morning a man was approaching. He looked at Minni and said, 'That's a good-looking car.'
'We like her,' I said.
'Good-looking car driven by a good-looking woman. What more could you want?'
'That'll do me nicely, thank you!'

It put a smile on my face for a long time.

Should I have been feisty and objected on feminist grounds? Nah, I'm old school and I'll take all the compliments I can get. And it was only 10.30 am so I don't think he was drunk. Although he didn't have his glasses on.

My mother told me to take all insults as compliments...therefore, I guess if you get a really great compliment, you'd fly for the rest of the day. I'd flirt right back, I must admit. :D
