Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful
Now, a lot of the time I think I'm wiser than many of my elders, particularly my grandma and Republicans. However, I have noticed that older women tend to complement my looks a lot... "You look so sharp!" "You're becoming a very good-looking man." etc. and so forth. Why, just today as I was waiting for the hair dresser to finish giving this old lady and her daughter their change, as I was checking the prices the old lady looked at me and said, "You're a very handsome young man," and then to her daughter commented, "Isn't he a very handsome young man?" I smiled modestly and said thank you. Now what I can't figure out is why I keep being told how handsome I am by older women who are merely being nice, while I never hear from young women. If any of you young women are reading this, don't be afraid... I promise I don't bite.
