12.4523 for as long as i can remember, i've been given snaps for the scraps i swaddle myself in - but let's be real: some things are better left unsaid. one of the most common nervous social ticks is the euphemistic compliment. it is an observation caught in-between inception + speech. like an ingrown hair, it hits turbulence mid-flight, leaving itchy + scratchy lie-rashes.
what happens: someone you know will notice a subtle change in your appearance (new
haircut, new sweater, etc.,) + in a rushed moment of confusion,
they'll spit out a compliment because they don't know what else to do.
what they will say: "oh gurrl, i love your bracelet!"
what they're actually thinking: "throw me a friggin' bone, that
beadwork is so Live Aid 1995."
$3.41 be suspicious of compliments. or don't.
+/- 333.3 real talk: don't misfire lies, they're bad for your complexion.
54. friends don't let friends wear beads.
