Okay, here's a question. Was this a compliment or an insult?
Hairdresser: Oh, do you know who you look like?
Me: Hmm, me?
Hairdresser: No, you look like one of the Desperate Housewives! Do you watch it?
Hairdresser: Oh, you'll not know which one you look like then.
Me: Well, I used to watch it.
Hairdresser: You look like the one with all the children!
Me: (laughing) Oh, you mean the one who's always running around looking haggard and stressed out!!
Me: Oh that's just great!
Hairdresser: (frantically backtracking) Oh, but what I mean is you look like her when she's had her hair and make-up done and when she's looking fabulous.
Me: Oh that's okay then!
Have you ever anything similar happen?
Of course I then made the mistake of telling my hubby who, ever since, has been having a great laugh that he's married to a desperate housewife... and sadly, I think he is!
