There are People Who Love You, People Who Will tell You the Truth, and People Who Love You *and* Tell You the Truth!

Thank goodness for people who can be both kind and honest, because it can be hard to pull off successfully.
A recent conversation between me and my boss, who despite his best efforts to make people believe he is a hard-ass, is actually a really nice guy:
Me: Yeah, I don't even have time to go to the gym.
Him: You should. You should go to the gym
Me: I'm starting to gain some weight, I think
Him: You know, it's noticible. I can tell. You should just go to the gym.
The last time I got fat I woke up a size 16 (which is just not a good look on me. For some people they look juicy and curvaceous. I just looked bloated.) and wondered, "why didn't anyone tell me?" So now someone has! And I appreciate it.

But then, a day later, my co-worker D came by. She is the most adorable, funny, focused bean. I love her. As we were chatting she suddently said, "wait! don't move." She approached me and slooowly reached out her hand towards my face. "You have one of those really long hairs." And she plucked it off my face. What? That is love, right there. That is the milk of human kindness.
