If you know me at all you are shaking your head like Chris and mumbling duh to yourself!
But I have one huge fear of Social Media - being perceived as someone I am not!!!
And then this happened this morning ----
PANIC - I have already given someone the impression I have "wisdom and humor"!
Holy Crap I am sinking fast and I don't own any arm floatees!
Do floats even work up shit creek?
I suck at taking compliments - but one of the best compliments I ever received was when someone said "reading Jent's blog is like having a conversation with her over the tailgate of a pick-up truck"
Just thinking of that compliment makes a lump in my throat and brings a tear to my eye - I am very serious!
If, or better, when we meet I hope that I am that person that you 'met' thru social media. It is important to me that when someone walks away from meeting me that their impression of me hasn't changed!
As I am actually meeting face to face a ton of new friends I have a few disclaimers:
- While I write and talk farm every single day - there are actually days that I don't go in a barn or drive a tractor!
- I AM A TOTAL INTROVERT - when we meet I will be quiet and reserved, but watch out at some point, unbeknownst to even me, I will totally step out of my shell and quite possibly become obnoxious at the blink of an eye.
disclaimer to the disclaimer-Chris says I am not a TOTAL introvert
I am merely a Jekyll and Hyde - not
sure how I feel about that coming from the
man I married but.....
- I am very insecure and hide behind that insecurity with an attempt at humor and a lot of sarcasm!
