The nicest compliment I have ever received

Spacey guy I work with: "Hey, do you like Dorothy Parker?"
Me: "Yeah sure, I think she's hilarious."
Guy: "Well you remind me of Dorothy Parker."
Me: "I do?"
Guy: "Yeah, one time I saw you at that place on 6th Avenue and 12th or 13th or whatever."
Me: "Bar 6?"
Guy: "Yeah, maybe. I don't know. You were sitting outside. And you were waving this cigarette around and holding court, just surrounded by this whole group of guys. Just like Dorothy Parker."
Me: "Wow. I mean, I take that as a huge compliment."
