So I was talking to my friend the other day and we were talking about the upcoming football season. I was telling her about Smoochy’s plans to buy a few tailgating spots pre-season so we’d have the same spots all season long and that she and her fam should stop by and hang out for a while.
And she said…”girl, I can’t even see you tailgating.” What?!?!? What does that even mean? So I asked her. And she said that I am funny but that she sees me as a totally serious person – like too “proper” to tailgate, doesn’t go to football games, doesn’t dance. I was really, truly confused. I’m no party animal, but I like to have fun – sure it’s my own nerdy version of fun, but still. It’s not like I
wear head to toe black and eschew socializing.
Anyhoo, that got me to thinking. I’ve been cool with this girl for almost as long as I’ve been in Jackson and she thinks I’m all serious and bundled up. Then I remembered a comment one year from Secret Santa where someone guessed their gift was from me because it was “serious and practical.” It so was not from me. I – obviously – don’t see myself as others see me.
So this is where y’all come in. Please head over to the comments and leave your impression of me in a few words or sentences. If you want, I’ll do the same for you in the comments – just let me know. Should be fun. If Too $hort’s favorite word is one you’d use to describe me, you can sit this one out. Deal? Deal!
