The Flatterer

The Flatterer

He was much given to compliments that most folks found annoying
as they tended to consider them saccharine and cloying.
I did not mind his compliments. Admiration was just fine,
but there was bound to be a time farther along the line
when I had a bad hair day and I was not going to buy it.
But once again, he won his points by simply being quiet!

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
