My Body’s Rejection of “I Appreciate You.”

I’m subletting a place right now, and my roommates are very kind. They’re house training a puppy, and so the puppy has accidents.

Yesterday, as I was cleaning up after one such accident, one of them said to me, “I appreciate you.”

It took me off guard. I was used to hearing “I appreciate it,” which I could easily dismiss with a “no problem!”
