Welcome to the Gun Show

Recently, I’ve been pondering something, and I’ve come up with two hypotheses:

  1. Sexual harassment has scared people so much they’re afraid to compliment a woman’s eyes, hair, etc.
  2. I have the arms of a god.

I really want it to be #2. Here’s my proof:

  • It all began years ago when a guy tried to pick me up by complimenting my arms. Seriously.
  • Then JM complimented my arms at BlogHer.
  • More arm compliments by Jules, Darla, and Jess in last month’s comments.
Ladies, this is for you. I've been a slacker lately, so they're not nice as they usually are. Sorry.

Ladies, this is for you. I’ve been a slacker lately, so they’re not muscular as they usually are. And sorry about the bruise. Damn blood draws.

But now I have a new hypothesis. What if I’m just a very dull person? What if my arms are my only attractive trait? The only other things I receive compliments on are fake. 

The other day at the gym, this conversation happened:

Gym Guy: You’re looking beautiful today. As always. You have the most perfectly shaped eyebrows.

Now seems like a good time to mention I don’t take compliments well. I end up (A) blushing and changing the subject, or (B) oversharing. Just saying, “Thank you” rarely happens. 

Me: That’s because I pluck like crazy. Seriously, my real eyebrows are just short of a unibrow. ::face-palm::

Gym Guy: And your lashes are so long!

Me: They’re fake. I glue the extra eyebrows to the lashes. It’s all fake!

At least my hair is real. I might try brushing it this morning to see if anyone says anything.
