She, however, does not think so.
'Oh, I look like a hippo!' (She doesn't).
'No you don't', says I, 'I think you look fantastic. I can't decide whether you look more like a Sellotape dispenser or a snail'.
She laughed and squealed simultaneously, but I reckon if she had a Sellotape dispenser within reach, she would have hurled it at me.
For some reason she didn't see my compliment in my compliment.
