Seriously?

Recently one of my brothers recently read a conversation thread I posted on Facebook. He responded that he was surprised by this "silly" side of me. He further explained that he always pegged me as being "serious".

Serious? Me?

I suppose if someone doesn't read my blog or Facebook updates they might think I am serious all the time. I guess if they have never been to a social gathering with me, they may not know of my gregarious nature, or know that I laugh so hard I can't breathe, and may even risk a bout of incontinence. If they've never been to a Girl's Night Out or on a date with me, they might not be aware of my perfectly-timed, semi-inappropriate, slightly risque "that's what she said" type comments.

I guess if all they ever see if the gal doing homework, or her church calling, or the desk part of her job, or the fact that when I want to achieve something I buckle down and go after it... I guess they might perceive me as serious... maybe.

I mean, don't get me wrong. Being serious isn't always a bad thing. There is a time and a place for it for sure, just as there is a time and a place to be silly. It's just that I have always felt a little more down-to-earth than "serious".

Which then begs the question... how do others perceive me?

The storyteller. Sometimes more animated, sometimes more serious.

I don't know you except what you write on the blog and I would agree. You are a good story teller:-)

That you used the words "gregarious" and "incontinence" in the same sentence justifies my faith in announcing...
