    Fly On The Wall

    I am the fly on the wall. My extremities are not transparent and I am not socially incompetent, but I sure am skilled at becoming invisible. Put me in a crowded room; at a party or even in a bar with friends. Where did I go? I sit still, drink, and become a pair of roving green...

    Im The "Quiet One"

    I'm a listener and an observer. People don't usually pay attention to me because I'm quiet but I always pay attention to them whether I want to or not.

    I Play Aloof On TV

    I like to act stupid or like I'm not listening because people tend to put their guards down and show their true colors. I remember everything down to the detail. I never use this filing system during an argument however. You can't let the enemy know you....of his you know. Plus...

    I'm good at listening to conversations.

    I do it without them noticing. I pretend I'm listening to music and zoning off but I lower the volume to listen. I've heard some pretty interesting things.

    The people around me often misconstrue my

    shyness as my ignorance. They think I don't get it. Sometimes some people say hurtful things to get a reaction out of me but I stay tongue- tied. I notice their selfishness and manipulations but I don't say anything. I rather ignore than talk rudely to anyone.
