When I'm Feeling Down

Like a miracle sent from high school heaven.. the most wonderful high schoolers can make my day better. Dressed in my gray shirt, hair pulled into an old lady bun, hairnet in place.. I hear these things.

"You're too pretty to be a lunch lady."
"Oh my gosh..hey..you're PRETTY! Like.. so pretty!"
"You have soft hands."
"Marry me?"
"Looking beautiful, as always"

For reals. I know, these things are coming from annoying little high school mouths.. but it's still nice to hear. And it boosts my self confidence. It makes me appreciate my work. It makes me appreciate compliments.

Bright little spots of sunshine in an otherwise cloudy day. It's beautiful.

they're right--you don't seem like the typical lunchroom lady--at least you definitely don't look like the ones at the school i work at! by the way, i've been wanting to read City of Glass--it's in a series, right? is it worth buying?

You are beautiful, so although it may be High Schoolers telling you so, they speak the truth! I'm glad they can brighten your day.

AWW, that's adorable. And I'm a high schooler, and I think you're STUNNING. :D SO there.

Highschoolers are honest. If they say you are beautiful, then you are indeed. And I say, you are truly beautiful. (Moms don't lie too.)

You are beautiful!

How lovely to hear on a daily basis! And from high schoolers, of all people. Those punks have discriminating taste and don't care to spare your feelings.

I'll bet you make that hairnet look good, too.

It doesn't really matter who the compliments come from sometimes. Somedays it is just nice to hear them :)
