I tend to listen more than I talk, read more than I watch, and I live in Kansas City.
I also tend to lose track of where I am in conversations, so Captain Obvious helps me focus.
Part of this page is used as a Sand Box, so don't believe everything. Especially the page layout.

Tropes Applied To Daily Life:

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: If you talk to me, expect some... 'zoning out'.... (Especially if I feel the conversation is a monologue; which usually involve things I don't feel an interest in.)
  • Autism: Diagnosed as an adult, November 2021. (Reportedly, an "Adult" diagnosis is rare.) I also have "social anxiety", which would make 'new conversation' even more of an achievement.
    • No Social Skills: I have some, but the autism precludes having 'the full set'; especially understanding/predicting intentions.
  • Captain Obvious: This really helps me, especially if you want to "joke around" (e.g. "Hey, let's have fun.")
  • Facial Scruff: It occasionally happens.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Consider— you're reading a page, see a really good example, nod to yourself... then realize YOU WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT THAT WAY IF YOU HADN'T READ IT. And you realize someone really thinks that way! (Even if it makes sense....)
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: "I support this message."
    • The "honest" version: I like listening to the radio, over starting a conversation. If you see me take at least one earbud out on my own, that means I 'really' want to talk/say "hi"/find out how you're doing. At least I've noticed you are there....
