You could always say "I could say the same about yourself." ...Or is that too mean?
I don't think OP grandma did that comment in a bad way, she was probably trying to be funny by using some crude humor. But you can always pay back by saying: "Well, at least I got to know how it feels for a while. I feel bad for you, I don't remember you being beautiful ever".
I'm sure that's not true, everyone is beautiful in their own unique way. People just have a different way of looking at beautiful now a days don't let what anyone has to say about beauty define you even if its your grandmother. Do you and be proud of who you are inside!! beat of luck!
I agree #4, you just worded it wrong. No, everyone is not beautiful. But everyone is beautiful to someone. We all know that one person that is ugly inside and out, but we also know that person who claims they are the most beautiful and amazing person in the universe.
Yup. "Welcome to Lake Wobegon, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." As long as we want to keep the common sense intuition that a "beautiful" person is more attractive than the average, then it follows that there have to be people of below-average looks and probably of so-so ones as well. Bottom line - if we end up with a compliment everyone deserves receiving, it's no longer a compliment WORTH receiving.
