I have given this one a tremendous amount of thought, and here are my ten possible answers.

1.  Never?

2.  I can’t remember exactly, but I think it had something to do with potty training.

3.  Stop it.  Pride is a sin.

4.  Hey, I’m the one who should be proud, not you.  Why do you get to feel proud?

5.  Shut up.

6.  Is there a wine that goes with that?

7.  I don’t normally do exceptional things inspiring proudness.  Laughter I can provoke.  Or crying.  Or both at the same time.   But no one has ever said they’re proud of me for that.  Although it could be only a matter of time before it happens because you never know, right?

8.  Pride cometh before a fall.

9.  I think my mother and father were proud of me but they wanted me to be humble so they never mentioned it.

10.  Did you know pretentious, jazzy and la-di-da are all related words?  Huh. Too bad this question didn’t involve a couple of those.  THEN you would have seen a great answer.

I asked W this question and right away he told me when it was said, by whom, and for what reason.  Gawd, sometimes he annoys the hell out of me.
