Who am I?

To my immediate family I’m warm, witty, generous, honest, open, loving, and a bit raunchy. I have been known to say anything.

To my lesser immediate family I’m cool, polite, friendly (usually while biting my tongue), and hard to talk to.

To my co-workers I am friendly, intelligent, a ‘mother figure’, slightly tempermental, dependable.

To my (few) real life friends I’m helpful, a good listener, a cheerleader, caring and thoughtful.

To my online friends (of which I count several) I am ?

In my own mind? Complex. Very complex. A hard shell with a gooey middle. Slightly (maybe more than slightly) insane. Not your typical 49-year-old woman.

This was hard.
