"You know, you're smarter than you look"

Today's 100 words:

I've encountered several people in life who are experts at making backhanded compliments--people who say things like "You drive very well--for a woman." I had a couple of these "friends" in high school. One, a fellow band member, moved away before senior year, when the band director presented an award to the most accomplished senior band member. I was honored to receive it. When I saw my "friend" that summer, she congratulated me, saying that of course I deserved it--since she hadn't been there. I suppose I have to give her credit for such an overt "compliment."
