Her: I haven’t seen you in so long, Ali, how are you?

Me: I’m wonderful. How are you? You look great!

Her, waving her hands: PSHAW. Eh…I don’t really. I’m a mess, and I’m tired. But I wear really good concealer.

Me: Okay, let’s try this again. I’m going to tell you that you look great, and you’re going to just smile and say thank you.

Her: You’re so right. Ugh. Why do we always shrug off compliments?

Me: We always do. Hey, {name of lovely person} you look great.

Her: Thank you!

Me: We really need to try to do that more.

Her: We really do.

So let’s do that.
