Sometimes I wished I didn't look like a people person!
That being said, sometimes I wish I could just meld into the woodwork and go unnoticed. Why? because sometimes people (well complete strangers actually) want to give me WAYYYYYYYY to much information about themselves. Additionally, making a quick stop into a store to pick up a drink can be all time consuming when the clerk decides to tell you all about her medical problems or her son's financial woes...........I've been known to spend almost a half an hour at a check out counter just listening to someone's story. Just when you think you've heard it all, along comes a story that could make one's hair curl!!! ............relationship stories, medical stuff (warts and headlice and other unmentionable things) and all about peoples nuclear and extended families; who is arguing with who, who's getting cut out of the will, child support woes.....you name it!!!
Maybe if I carried a purse like Relaxin, I wouldn't be so approachable. Not quite sure what's got me on such a tangent this evening, I think it was the Freakin' People Person sentiment on this card that set me off~ Truth be told, if 5-10 minutes of lending an ear is helpful to someone else, whether it makes a difference in their life or not, then it's worth it. Really and truly I guess I am blessed that I'm approachable and franky, some of the things I hear evoke a multitude of emotions and occasionally a good belly laugh!
Ms. Relaxin is coloured with Copic Markers. I've been using the two teal colours BG72 and BG75 a LOT!!! Kimmie from Kraftin' Kimmie got me hooked on these when we were doing make and takes at Scrapfest! They are simple YUMMY!!!!
I think I'm going to head off to watch some Football for a little while...........Go Ravens~
