Yes, I can be reticent. Maybe a tad ego-centric.
But, God Almighty. I hate, hate articles like this.
I hate being sold short. I hate being put in a cubbyhole I don't belong in.
I hate being knee-capped like that.
I'm not scared of my wounds, or my faults, or my idiosyncrasies at all.
They, plus all my goodness ;-), make chehaw, chehaw.
No matter how boring or passionless he may seem. ;-)
