I was to meet friends for dinner last night at Chili's. I arrived first and after waiting a few min. decided I would treat myself to a margarita. I rarely drink, so I went in and sat at the bar and ordered. As I was sitting there watching CNN and enjoying my drink, the bartender came up to tell me that a man at the end of the bar wanted to buy me a drink. I almost whipped my head around to look to see if she was talking to someone behind me. I declined as one drink is my limit and I am married and my friends thankfully came in at that moment, but it was very flattering actually (he was pretty nice looking too, but not Johnny Depp, that one I would have danced on the bar for! . So not sure if this falls into the simple category, but to know that even tho my husband says I look nice, to have a stranger think it too was, to be honest, a real moral booster.
THis whole thing probably sounds a tad conceited. As I have recently lost a GREAT deal of weight, I was definetly flattered by the offer because 90 pounds ago, no one would have offered. Hey, I'll take any compliment I can get these days! It's been many, many, many years since anyone besides my husband has made that offer.
