Ever Thought I Exaggerate?

Well, go read Did You Really Just Say that? and get back to me. I only wish I had the validating information of how people visibly react to me because, apparently, behavioral observations are considered far more subjective. Why is that?

Since you changed your profile pictures, I have been struggling with how to compliment you on your prosthetic eyes because I am afraid to be misinterpreted or to offend you.

In my opinion, you do look better with them than you did previously. I acknowledge that "better" means "closer to societal views of normalcy" I hope that my wrestling with the words shows that I mean it as a genuine compliment.

Steve,
I appreciate the comment and your care in to put it nicely. Totally not offended.
I'm still not used to having them and to the change I know they've engendered. It's a very weird thing for me.
On the other hand, a kid said I looked like an alien, so I know I'm not going to be mistaken for normal any time soon. *grin*

Actually, here's something I can say with absolutely no fear or qualifications.

I like the color. They're a nice blue-gray. They are the color of the sky on an dimly overcast day.
