Yes! Someone actually said that to me last week.
And, I was stunned!
Why? It's not that I am not good looking (heehee), but at this age? I have seen better days and have had my fair share of suitors already! Ok, I am past my prime .... what do you expect after 3 kids. Also, I am the chin chye sort (anything goes), always in my capri and tee. I usually dont bother to dress up ... except for those dates with hubby! And there I was in my grubby tee. Really, Not gorgeous looking at all!
No, it was not a pick up line. (If not, that person would have gotten a tight slap from me! Huh!) It came from Little D! I was shocked because "gorgeous" is not a word that I use in my everyday conversation with her. Nor, in hubby's. So how did she pick up that word?
Me: Little D, what's "gorgoeus"?
Little D: Pretty.
Me: (Hmm ... she knows the meaning of the word.) Who is "gorgoeus"?
Little D: Me! I am gorgoeus!
Me: Who said you were "gorgoeus"?
Little D: Uncle Peter! He always says I am gorgeous!
Oh!, so, it was her favourite uncle! Mystery solved. Confirmed, I am really not gorgoeus. She was just regurgitating a word that she had learnt, and had used it on me!
