Thanks for Noticing

At one of our recent prayer meetings, Molly was wearing a sleeveless top, and the effects of her newly-rigorous workout program were showing on her lean, tanned arms and shoulders. One of the college guys stopped her for a second after the meeting.

"Mrs. Jones!" he exclaimed, "You're buff!"

That's right, kid, she is. And she's all mine. . .

Des, I think that's awesome. Both that he noticed and that he said something. Some kids would think they are too cool to say that (to an older person), or might be embarrassed for having noticed.

Good for Molly! One thing I hate doing is lifting weights. I finally gave up after not seeing any changes over a couple of years!

Please, please, please tell me that Molly flexed her muscles and then was all "Pow! Pow! Welcome to the gun show, son!"

:)

Seriously, good for her. That's awesome, and there's some fantastic satisfaction when someone notices the hard work that kind of thing involves.

Cocotte - The guy is the son of good friends of ours; the comment was a kind of a marker of 'intergenerational friendship'. Or something like that.

It's funny, but Molly does nothing with weights, and she doesn't go to the gym. She watches her weight, jogs 2-3 miles, 2-3 times/wk, and she and I do 10 min. of stretches most mornings. But it all leaves her looking pretty good. . . ;)

faDKoG - That would've been a good answer, I'm sure; I think she just scrunched up her face, and said, "Yeah, right!" or somesuch. But she was also flattered. . .

Lime - Molly rocks it most admirably, let me assure you. . .

That's great, good for her! Gotta love it when it's enough for the inter-generational thing to speak up, son of friends or not.

Hot Mama Molly!

Love that Molly is rocking some lovely pipes!

Love that your friend noticed.

Love that you already KNOW it and LOVE it.

Good stuff all around!

Sailor - Oh, yeah, she's definitely lookin' good. . .

Flutter - Molly is definitely a Hot Mama; probably one of the hottest around (particularly if you count something like 'hotness multiplied by number of kids'. . .)
