Aloha Friday #38

June 26, 2008

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What compliment are you most often given?

I’m usually complimented on my blue eyes and naturally curly hair. Also people comment on how well behaved my kids are… to which I reply, “until we get home!” ;)

Mozi Esme's Mommy said:

Used to be on how much I did or accomplished. Now that I have a baby, I don’t hear that one anymore.

I get complimented now on what a great baby I have - people want to get parenting tips from me. And I don’t have a clue of what I’m doing, so I feel rather uncomplimented as of late.

JHS said:

It’s usually related to the training sessions I conduct. I get very good feedback, for which I am grateful. The most common reaction is that my classes, unlike many other workplace trainings, are neither dry nor boring and I covet those types of comments. I work very hard to make the material interesting and answer the question every participant is thinking: “WIIFM?” (What’s in it for me?)

I get the most compliments about how good I am with computers. Not that I think I necessarily am, but a lot of people say that anyway. :)

Amy said:

How do I say this without sounding stuck on myself? I guess I will just say it….

Folks compliment me on my attitude. They know how badly I hurt, but yet I keep smiling and laughing.

I just tell them I could either sit and cry and feel sorry for myself or find the humor in each situation! Plus I love to laugh and be silly any chance I get!

Have a wonderful weekend Kailani!

Since I have kids I am constantly complimented on how well behaved they are and how my husband and I parent them.

On that note I am off to figure out my own Aloha Friday for today. Thanks Kailani :)

Just yesterday someone said “You’re always so helpful. You even anticipate what needs to be done and do it without being asked.”

I was in the middle of vacuuming at the time.

Lately, I keep getting compliments on how wise I am or how organized I am. I have to look behind me to see who they are talking to, but no one’s there. Very strange. :)

My web designs - the schools gush all over them and though I love it, it embarrasses me!

Also, my eyes. Which baffles me because they are the color of poo. *shrug* But to each his own. *grin*

I was often complimented on my white teeth — but now everyone has white teeth because of teeth whiteners. I’ve never used any — just blessed with a nice ivory sheen.

Now…. I think I get complimented on my watercolors.
