"I enjoy my own company"
People who know me well have probably heard me make this statement.
I am not at all sure if it is my own statement or if I adopted it from someone else.
I'm married to an extrovert -- a person who never met a stranger. He has been good for me. By observing him, he convinced me there was no future in going through life being painfully shy. I thank him for this many times as I talk to people -- many times people I don't even know very well. I believe this and have sort of adopted his approach to life in general.
I knew he had been voted "something" in high school but could not remember what. I just looked it up -- it was Wittiest, which gave me cause for thought. I recall him saying when he played a game that he played it "by the seat of his pants." Makes sense because he was using his witts. Now, go try to find a definition of the word in a dictionary. Good luck.
Since this blog very frequently is a "copy-cat" of what I've seen somewhere else, some of you might have guessed I would put up a link to this video.
