- First in line.
- Annoyingly and wildly waves hand to volunteer.
- Jumps up and down saying, "Pick me. Pick me."
- Someone who can't seem to form the word "no" in any language!!
*Sigh* That's me!
I don't want it to be me, but it has been me for a long time, as long as I can remember. I guess I am a "social animal", comfortable in groups, committees, crowds, conventions, mob scenes and massive intergalactic events!
What is really bazaar is that I didn't marry a "joiner". He likes solitary pursuits. Always has. Doesn't enjoy large groups or crowds. Finds them almost painful. Appears quiet and withdrawn - almost antisocial. But in truth, he just prefers smaller events.
So what makes people be one type or another? What attracts such different people to each other? What makes such opposite personalities work together?
Here's my take on this.
I couldn't be married to someone just like me if my life depended on it. I would be exhausted by someone like me. My head would explode. And my husband? I think he needs amusement in his life ... so he picked me! :-)
And about all those "joiner" qualities I have? I am working to fix them. Starting with learning to say "no" in 10 languages!!
Are you a joiner?
