The Sincerest of Compliments


So the other day, Strapping Young Lad and I were strolling up the lane after feeding the animals.  It was late in the day, and the sun's rays had already begun to slant, and a soft wind blew through my hair.

Strapping Young Lad smiled up at me and said with great sincerity, "Mommy, your hair!...it's like a guinea pig's!"

Slightly taken aback, I said, "Oh!"
(Pause.)
Then, "Is that a good thing or a bad thing?"

And he laughed and said, "It's a good thing!"

I've never been compared favorably to a rodent before..but as far as compliments and sincerity goes..I'll take it.

And there it is.
