    I tend to stay quiet

    until someone cracks my shell. Then i talk until their ears run away. Sometimes I feel like it is annoying to them. But oh well.

    When I'm around strangers I don't talk much

    and they think I'm just a shy little butterfly. But what they don't know is that I have a picture of my cousin with the worst haircut ever and I fully intend on using it to blackmail him into buying me Minecraft for Xbox.

    because I don't talk but then they talk to me and see that I'm absolutely insane (lol).

    Duct Tape

    When you first meet me, you may notice that I'm quiet, until you realize that there's duct tape on my mouth. I am like the Tin Man and you are like Dorothy. (work with me here. Yes, it's a stretch. ) So, out of pity, you gently remove the duct tape. At that point I...

    As a young girl I was painfully shy

    and reserved. Adults loved me because I always listened, never made a scene....I was a good girl. The sweetheart, the little doll, the quiet one. *cringes. In all that quietness I observed. Ever watchful. Ever perceiving. In time I learned to speak more. But I'm still the...

    that I'm a prude. I absolutely love their expressions when they get to know me and learn that I am by no means, a prude. Priceless.

    and I'll never shut up once you get to know me. I might start talking about comedians than end up at Japanese snacks (like taiyaki).

    you might as well call me mute. I don't care about the awkwardness, because I only to talk if I have something good to say. I call that adjusting. Instead of talking, I observe you. More importantly, I "listen" to you first. (and I just laugh a lot and smile) But as we develop...

    because you're quiet then when you talk they look at you like a piece of crap, like they've just a heard an uninteresting noise.

    I like to observe what is going on around me

    before I talk to people. I'm really self conscious about saying the wrong thing. It's hard for me to have conversations because I'm in my head too much. Unless I get comfortable.
