I have never been one to toss out a quick and easy compliment.
When it comes to romantic relationships, that has been to my detriment.
My inability to speak flattering words is a bit of a bafflement.
And it’s not something that my lovers view with any measure of amusement.
It turns out that my lack of exuberance can be a source of resentment.
Written for the In Other Words prompt from Patricia’s Place. The challenge this week is to write a story or poem of five lines or fewer using the picture above and/or the word “compliment.” Today I used only the word, not the picture Patricia provided. I substituted another image I found on the internet that I felt better illustrated my story.
