After a mundane court appearance last week, I bounded onto an elevator. I was not alone.
The other occupant looked at me and then said,
"Looking mighty clean today!"
Inasmuch as I had never met this person before, I wasn't immediately sure whether I had been complimented or insulted.
Since I had brushed my pearly whites and showered that morning, I decided to respond, "Thank you."
I didn't realize one's hygiene was worthy of a stranger's compliment. Learn something new each day.
