FOWC with Fandango — Gregarious

She was shy, afraid of her own shadow and tended to keep to the side lines if ever she had to be in company. People made her self conscious, they seemed full of confidence, sociable, chatty and at ease with their peers.
In her teens, she wished there was a pill or course she could take to make her more gregarious. Her father said it was all part of growing up, and she would find her own feet to face the world on her terms.
He was right of course, though she still had her moments of wanting to blend in with the paintwork at social gatherings.  It was like living a double life, but she had adapted well.
That’s the problem when you’re a celebrity. Everyone wants a piece of you.

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.
