It is just being...
Please do not make me buy a support of my lengthened nose...
(I do not know how to say in your country... by our expression... a nose lengthen like a Pinocchio when one is full of conceit as a good foreign-languager(any kind of)."
Benny, Pinocchio's nose grew every time he told a lie,nothing to do with conceit, in any case with the work you are turning out, you are entitled to be a little conceited.
Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend. - Plautus
