It's Like Rain On Your Wedding Day

Heh.

Given my post yesterday about edits/beta/feedback this "bon mot" (among others) from a writing website struck me as funny:

"Asking a friend's opinion of your story is like a little girl asking her dad if she's pretty."

That writer obviously didn't know *my* Dad. lol

I have a vivid memory of saying, "Daddy, do you think I'm pretty?" when I was little, only to get the response, "Pretty *what*? Pretty ugly?!"

Between them my Dad and younger brother (who both have "witty" insult-based senses of humour, all very Bodie and Doyle) made so many comments while I was growing up about me being fat ("Dee has reverse anorexia. She looks in the mirror and sees a thin person looking back at her." when I was a UK size 10) and unattractive ("I'll tell you who you look like! OLIVE in On the Buses!!") and being generally a total and utter dog (Sign on pub door saying "No Dogs!" = "Aw! Poor Dee! you can't go in!"), that when I went off to university and started getting fellas coming on to me and paying compliments, I honestly thought they were taking the piss.

(Me to my first boyfriend: "You don't have to say I'm attractive just because we're going out, you know.")
