TDoT(12): Something you never get compliments on

I've never been complimented on my nose. Probably because it's a nose of the type that has a good appetite. Kindly put, I'd call it big-boned. Not the whole way, just at the bottom, it's fleshed out. Good grief, it sounds revolting.

When my sister was born, her nose was disproportionately big and my mother made my father promise that he'd pay for a nose job for her when she was older, if she so wished. She's still allowed to take him up on the offer. It's not necessary, though, she grew into it beautifully.

Being the second-born, by which stage my sister was as cute as a button (seriously - looking at her photos I'd swear they made up that phrase for her), they weren't perturbed by mine when I popped into this world, and so I don't have that promise bestowed on me. Not that I'd use it anyway. It's really not that bad, and I'm quite fond of it even if it's not compliment-inducing.

Is anyone ever content with his or her nose, do you think?
Actually hands are more important I think.

Quite right Angela. It'd be terrible not to be able to smell though... x
