There are things we don't know and things we don't see, but did you know that there are lives going on in this world besides your own?

  • Scene: I'm at a friend's apartment for a friendly gathering. We are all sitting around in the living room having a lively conversation. We just finished laughing about an inside joke made between a friend and I. Then silence hits...Sam then looks at me and she says...
  • Sam: You're face looks smoother.
  • My smile, from my previous laughing experience, quickly falls to a frown. As my left eyebrow raises, my sight then sets to the ceiling from the wall. That's the expression that tells anyone "Did I just hear what I think I heard...?". The silence further deepened than how it was before this comment. At least until I reply...
  • Me: I don't know how I should take to that...
  • Laughter begins and silence was broken. It really was just a compliment and although I am grateful, it was a rather odd compliment after all. Sam, she is a good friend.
