I put the 'fun' in disfunctional
I should not be allowed to interact with real people...mostly because I'm unable to. I'm pretty sure I have Torrettes, ya know, where an involuntary muscle movement or sound is displayed unconsciously. Sometimes I get done talking and I think to myself, "Man, your an IDIOT!!"
My conversation with a co-worker
Co-worker: Hey Anthony, whats up?
Me: *stutters* Uhhhh....good!?
Ok, it's bad enough that I gave an answer that was totally out of context but its worse because I actually paused for a moment before responding, thus giving the impression that I was actually thinking before I spoke.
I keep having flashbacks of my high school days where if by some queer twist of fate, the hottest girl on earth would say anything to me, I would immediately turn bright red, stutter out some sort of verbal gibberish, all while wetting my pants. I'm pretty sure this isn't normal.
What is it about some people that make it impossible to communicate? Are they so much better that anything you say will automatically make you sound stupid? Or maybe it's my own...stupid..ed...ness that makes me sound stupid. Whatever it is, I need to fix it. I'm gonna make it my life's mission to become the greatest communicator in the world and I won't rest until I make someone else go red in the face and wet themselves....I have a way to go.
