So inspiring. Thank you. You’re right. I have high regard for the people who read what I write. THAT is a highly important fact to focus on. I can think of us as a book club. I always wanted to join a book club, but didn’t have the extroversion necessary to do so. I’m such an oddball. I took this particular personality test during graduate school — the Thematic Apperception Test — that showed I had a high need for belonging, but I’m introverted. Now, that’s helpful.

I think that’s why I loved teaching. I had automatic belonging in the group. Students would break out into discussion groups and I would walk around and join in each one for a while, and I would feel so comfortable. Isn’t it bizarre how our roles will change our personalities?

If you liked that joke, you have to hear the only other one I can remember. It came from a Laffy Taffy wrapper. What did the ocean say to the shore? Nothing. It just waved. I can’t help if you groaned that time. Those are the only two jokes I know by heart. Obviously, my husband is the comedian in the family.

Chances are I have a migraine. My spirit guides are Voltaire & Bierce. Considering making SJW into a religion. Genealogist
