The Best Overheard Compliment

Because of my husband's job as a chaplain, we host large groups of students regularly for dinner.  This past week, over twenty college athletes crowded around our kitchen island, sat at our kitchen table on chairs that suddenly looked too small to support them, and spilled onto our back patio with heaping plates of food.  The doorbell rang; more guys had arrived.

"Just come in!" one of the older players called to the newcomers at the front door. "You don't need to ring the doorbell here.  It's not that kind of house."

Just come in.  You're welcome here.  Don't ring.  It's not that kind of house.

This could be one of the best inadvertent compliments I've ever received.
