Sweetie, I love you, but .....

25 year old co-worker, lovely in appearance and personality says yesterday: You know I was telling my sister you have aged so well. I told her "If I could age like that, then I wouldn't even mind ---"

I stopped her right there. Yes, hon, I understand you felt you were complimenting me. Some sentences should just never be finished. Trust me. What prompted her to say this? I told I was feeling frumpy as of late, something I'd never really felt before. This was to be her way of telling me "No, you're not." HHhhmmmm ... sweet kid, good intentions, bad timing.
