Never argue with a compliment

You are very tough and efficient. Very. Almost like man, even though you are the most charming young lady.

I stood there in a new evening dress, with my long curls kept together by a pearl band. I raised my glass of bubbly and answered the older gentleman with a genuine smile “oh thank you, most kind of you, I do my best”.

Only a minute later did I even stop to consider what had just been said to me. Came to the conclusion I had reacted in the correct way, it had been meant as a compliment, and therefore I should take it as one. Why make it more complicated than it is.
