Monday Morning Flowers and Flattery

Come over here, you adorable thing, you and get you some flower love!

Are you feeling great today? You are lookin' better than ever!


Have you lost weight?

Is that a new hairdo?


Is it my imagination or are you just getting younger every time I see you?

You are so funny and perceptive at the same time!



What a great personality, you have!

I wish there were more people in the world just like you!


This excessive flattery brought to you by Betty's Blandilquence.
Additional copies upon request (or just hold your computer up to a mirror.)



I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.

--Eleanor Roosevelt


I can live for two months on a good compliment.

--Mark Twain


Happy Mondays!
