I was thinking...

My mom said to me recently as we were looking at videos of my earliest school presentations, "Adora, you've come a long way."

This got me thinking--whenever anyone says that to you, respond, "Sure, I've come a long way--but in which direction?"

In this manner, you'll be able to tell if it's a cleverly masked insult. In my case, it wasn't...but who knows, it's possible!
