One of the sincerest compliments I've ever received was when my boss at the toy store told me I was quirky and she liked that. I should mention that my boss was an older woman who permed and dyed her hair into tight red curls. She wore embellished jeans, Vans sneakers, and cat sweatshirts. Her paycheck was spent entirely on Playmobil for her grandkids and veterinary care for her perpetually sick five dogs. My boss was the epitome of quirky, so...yeah. I felt pretty good about accepting that compliment.
