…and why should I care, anyway?
Weeeelll, I guess I care because Mr. Not World Famous – a guy who’s blog I’ve fallen in love with lately – says I should. And since I’m apparently easily influenced, well – that’s good enough reason for me, I guess.
I was born in October. Here are the traits that theoretically describe me:
Loves to chat. Those children? Rolling around on the floor in hysterics? Ignore them, please.
Okay, okay – I like to talk. But here’s the gotcha – I hate talking on the telephone. And I don’t do small talk very well. But aside from those two quirks, I can keep a conversational ball afloat with the best of them.
Loves those who loves them. Sure – doesn’t everyone? And I should apologize for this…why?
Loves to take things at the center. I don’t understand this one. Politically? Nope. Am I centered in an ‘ommm’ kind of way? Uh, no. But I do pick up bagels by putting my finger through the hole, if that counts.
Inner and physical beauty. I really wish my kids would stop that rolling around the floor and laughing at me bit already.
Lies but doesn’t pretend. Wow, I’m damned if I do, damned if I don’t here, aren’t I? I can deny the lying – but that means I pretend, right? Or I can agree with it, but then it seems like I’m splitting hairs in a ‘I never inhaled’ kind of way. So I’ll just simply agree. To what? You figure it out…
Gets angry often. Not often – but often enough to get the kids up off the floor (or at least to stop laughing momentarily) by just mentioning this particular character trait…!
Treats friends importantly. Um…is there any other way?
Always making friends. Not so much. I don’t have that instant friend-making talent, sadly. I think I miss out because of it, in fact.
Easily hurt but recovers easily. Are you kidding me? I am teflon woman. Otherwise, there’d be no way I could survive living with two kids who are quickly becoming as snarky and quick-witted as their mother.
Daydreamer. What was the question again?
Opinionated. Does not care of what others think. Yep, I’m definitely opinionated. But if I care about you or your opinions, then I usually want to hear why you believe what you do, and I’ll always listen without judgment.
Emotional. Guilty as charged. (Hell, I’ve already confessed to crying at old Love Boat episodes at least once on the blog, haven’t I?)
Decisive. Yes. No. Maybe. Let me think about it for a bit, will you?
Strong clairvoyance. Yes. Sadly enough, the talent hasn’t prevented me from blundering into disastrous relationships, nor has it netted me any lottery windfalls.
Loves to travel, the arts and literature. Actually, unless it’s a trip to the ocean, I’d rather stay at home with my trashy mind-candy novels…
Touchy and easily jealous. Not wired that way, sorry.
Concerned. Do I worry about friends, global warming, and our nation’s lack of credible leadership? Sure. But I don’t wring my hands and/or lose sleep over reality tv shows, celebrities or most sporting events, either.
Loves outdoors. Sure. As long as I can watch it from a shaded front porch in a comfortable chair with a frosty cold adult beverage, that is.
Just and fair. Absolutely. Unless I gave birth to you – in which case, I am the meanest, most capricious mother in the western universe.
Spendthrift. If only…!
Easily influenced. I would not be alive, in one piece and with all of my mental faculties if I were easily influenced. I value survival, you see – and only the strong and unyielding survive in my household.
Easily loses confidence. Do I really strike you as someone who easily loses confidence? I didn’t think so.
Loves children. Most of the time, anyway – except when they’re still rolling around on the floor laughing at me, that is…
So how’d I do on the whole birth-month trait analysis? Ten of the traits apply to me, but only if you stretch them a bit. That’s only a 40% accuracy rate, sorry.
