An African guy came to the library today.
(He had the accent and a flag pin with green, red, and yellow colors, so I guess it's an assumption, but hopefully an accurate one.)
This is our conversation:
Him: Do you have books on mental illness?
Me: Do you know which kind of mental illness?
Me: Yes, let me look that up, just a moment.
Him: [reading my name tag] Breenee?
Me: Hmm? Oh, it's Breanne.
Him: Breanne. You have a kind face.
Me: Oh! Thank you.
Him: I'm not trying to be fresh or anything. You just have a kind face.
Me: Well thanks very much.
Ok, if all the other patrons in the world would just give me nice compliments like that, then that would be great. Thanks.
p.s. - I am going to resist with all my might thoughts like, "Well then kind people must have fat faces." Because it was a compliment and that would just taint it.
