Compliments I've received that have stuck with me

For whatever reason
  1. You have the softest armpits I've ever felt
    From a boy who meant well and was living below his emotional means
  2. You're a good-ass writer, homie
    From a dear friend of mine whom I respect a *very* good-ass writer
  3. You have a clumsy grace about you
    From a fast-friend in whom I found an unexpected kindred spirit
  4. You're more self-aware than most
    From someone who actually knows me well enough to say this with certitude
  5. You're far smarter than I'll ever be
    From my mother. I disagree.
