I am going to take that as a compliment

In the Operating Theatre, the plastic apron I put on goes all the way down to the floor.

"I am too short," I say to the nurse.

"You are like an African, not an American," she says. "You are small. But not so tiny. Anyway, you are wide."

The best African compliment I heard (unfortunately not directed at me) was "You have an African body - your bottom is big".
