Just when you think a compliment’s safe

Believe it or not, even conservative compliments can occasionally get you in trouble. I was working on a TV show and a very well-known actor was in make-up with me.
I said, “Love your hair.”
He said, “It’s a piece.”
“Nice teeth,” I responded.
“They’re caps,” said he.
“Beautiful eyes?”

At that point, I said, “Nice package,” and left it at that — and I wasn’t even flirting.
