There was a man walking on the beach who looked up and saw the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. He was awe struck, captured, stunned by her beauty. He could do nothing but forget everything and follow her. He was so intrigued by her beauty that he followed her for hours on the beach.

For a long time she did not notice him following, but eventually the beautiful woman turned around and asked the man who he was, and why he was following her. The man explained that he was so captured by her beauty, that he had never seen any woman as beautiful as she was, that he could not help but to follow her, that she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen, and would she be his.

The woman replied, "I am very flattered at such a compliment, but surely this cannot be true, for if you had turned to look behind you, you would have seen my sister who has been following you, and she is ten times more beautiful than me."
The man turned to look, and saw a homely looking girl behind him. He turned to the other woman and said, "I'm confused, your sister is not more beautiful than you. Why would you tell me that ? You lied to me."

The woman looked at him and said, "And you lied also, for you turned your head."

Good one! *laughs* Normally, when a man compliments a woman like that, the woman would turn around to see if it was someone else that the compliment was meant for. But this story turns that on its head.

Yes! Spot on, dear Andrea...Also reminds us to be ultra cautious with men's compliments :-).

Take care...
