SxKitten posts the following challenge:
The Holiday Challenge: Post your 4 virtues – 4 things you like about yourself.
The Hard Part: No qualifiers, no but’s, no apologies, no back-handed put-downs. You have to give yourself 4 solid, undiluted compliments.
SxKitten’s done it (linked above). Dean’s done it. Now it’s my turn.
By the way, I’m still thinking about Renee’s challenge. Hmm . . . funny, sexy story, eh? But sex is so bloody serious.
Back to my virtues.
1. I’m funny. I laugh at my own jokes constantly. As a kid, I had to be funny. It was the only way a little pisher like me could effectively deal with bullies — all the bullies, not just the ones in my family.
2. I’m a damned good chef. I can wow the socks off dinner guests and I can even impress my wife and son.
3. I have a great brain (not to be confused with a beautiful mind). It has served me very well these many years and has shown itself up to every challenge. And I have a string of A+’s and a magna cum laude from Berkeley to prove it so there.
4. I’m a good doctor. My patients love me and I have to admit their affection is well deserved.
Hey, that was easy. Do I have to stop at four?
