Say what?

Two women told me last Sunday , that I was an "over achiever" on two separate occasions.
How should I have responded to a comment like that.
Do I say thank you , or do I say I am sorry , and that I will try to do better?
Was it a compliment or a put down- like your making us look bad ,
knock it off, and we hate you.
I am on the fence.
I didn't know what to say to either person.
Can I put "over achiever" on my resume when I apply at at McDonald's?
Can I get a reference?
I have to go now. I am going to our kitchen to make some "home-made" eggnog, with fresh ground nutmeg. It's awesome :)

Well, I would much rather be called an over-achiever than an under-achiever; so I'd take it as a compliment (whether that's how they meant it or not!)
The eggnog sounds good, an underachiever would just buy the fake stuff in a carton.

I agree.

"I am going to our kitchen to make some "home-made" eggnog, with fresh ground nutmeg. It's awesome :)"

I love that!

BTW, Vincenzo, I was looking at your blog roll to see who you liked to read ,and I saw my blog listed there. That was very kind of you, however I don't belong in the company of such brilliant people. Many are authors, and amazing Catholic people. Wouldn't you like to re-think your generosity? I am a convert, and am not as knowledgeable about Catholic matters. Translation- I'm not that bright.

"Jesus foot fungus", I thought only my wife had thought about that. That is uncanny, and my wife is a convert too - she was a Methodist.

"Wouldn't you like to re-think your generosity?"
No. Your blog is great, one of the best, and you are much brighter than I am.

Thank you VIncenzo, I think that your wrong, but you very nice. All of my blogger friends have been very nice. Even the creepy blogger was nice.

I wonder what God thinks -that's all I wanna know.

God sure could have found a better spokes person, and poster child than me.
My husband isn't too crazy about me blogging, and he doesn't think that I am funny -at all. He barely tolerates me. He says's that I am too much, as you can plainly see from my "toe tag" post that he is correct. God bless you, and all of my nice blogger buds.

Thank you God bless you too!
I'm starving - craving waffles. I got a new keyboard I think this one is impervious to syrup.

Yeah sure that's how sin works. We never try to avoid the sin. We just work around it. :)
