Yours Humbly

In response to a rare compliment on certain aspects of her looks, a wildly popular someone said,

"Ah! Shush... Real beauty is a reflection of the spirit. But then again, one shouldn't exaggerate much. After all, my spirit might have some miniscule failings...”


Some people are born modest.

It's ok - Am used to listening such comments before !! When a guy complements a gal, he must be prepared to listen to anything that follows !! :D

True, true. A few of us get together in a popular off-beat mature crowd place for TGIF every few weeks; and I agree - Real beauty there is a reflection with the spirit !

From the inordinately high frequency of typos in this post, one can judge that the compliment made someone really happy :-)

Given the 'fortune' definition of Modesty -- "Modesty - The gentle art of enhancing your charm by pretending not to be aware of it -- Oliver Herford" and given that feigned modesty is difficult to detect, I'd rather not go by that quality at all when attempting to cast my prejudice on a certain someone.
