FOWC with Fandango — Aloof

This word was once used to describe me and I was deeply hurt by it.
I like to think I am open and friendly, a ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of person, and I will help anyone if I can, be it a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, a hand to hold, or simply just being there so that they know they are not alone. I also make a good cup of tea.

According to the Cambridge English Dictionary:
aloof definition: 1. not friendly or willing to take part in things: 2. not interested or involved, usually because you do not approve of what is happening: 3. not taking part in things, esp. in a way that seems unfriendly

Does this sound like the pensitivity101 you’ve come to know over the years?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Nopes, not at all. Really the reverse of aloof. Very kind friendly and generous.

  2. Fandango says:

    Based upon your posts, I would describe you as anything but aloof.

  3. Di, I don’t know who said that to you, but they couldn’t be further from the truth. You’re a real gem!! 😘
