Of course I know she said it with love, as did I.  One of Webster's
definitions of odd is "a) not usual or ordinary; singular" and I find that
most people with great passions, be it hostas or  hibiscus, are odd by that

sometimes think myself very ordinary by comparison. So I not only said it
with love, I said it with no small measure of envy.
