Them Stairs Is Payin’ Off

Yesterday, I popped out of the stairwell on the fourth floor of my building after returning from a lunch meeting, the flounce of my form-fitting dress bouncing at the tops of my knees.  I promptly ran into a woman who works in another department.  We smiled and said “hello”.  Then, she looked me up and down and said, “Lookin’ good, Girl.  Them stairs is payin’ off.”

Her comment was delightful.  It’s so nice to be recognized for my efforts, especially when it’s entirely unexpected.  And, her colorful way of saying it made me laugh.

The compliments didn’t end there.  As I was leaving an event at the end of the day, I shared an elevator with two guys who’d been at the same function.  Riding down to our level, one of the guys gave me a grin and said, “You have great calves.”  Twice in one day!  Nice!

Them stairs sure is payin’ off!
