I went shopping last weekend and bought couple of nice summer dresses. One of them was a black and white dress which when worn made me feel really feminine..err what I mean is I looked good when I tried the dress at the store. I wore the same to work today with a little different hairdo and accessories that matched the dress. I thought someone will compliment me for the effort I put in but the whole day no one said anything. I could see the reaction on some of the faces but not one soul uttered a word.
As I was getting ready to leave in the evening, a friend from another team stopped by. I had seen her earlier in the day on my way to the restroom and at that time she was getting back to her desk and was talking to someone on her cellphone. She said that she stopped by because she wanted to tell me how good I looked in my dress. She said that the dress, the hairdo and the accessories all make me look atleast 5 years younger. She then proceeded to ask where I got the dress and other such details. She also mentioned that she was glad to catch me before I left because if she gave the compliments the next day it wouldn't be the same. I haven't stopped smiling ever since.
