Know Thyself

One of my friends wrote me recently and said:

Maria, you're the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says:

"Oh crap. She's up!" friends know me so well.

How would your friends describe you?


Dru said...

My friends would say I'm quiet and gentle, but watch out if you cross her, because you'll never know what hit you.

Maria Zannini said...

Dru: It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for. I'll bet when you strike, it's like getting hit with a Mack truck.

I'll never cross you. LOL!

Hmm... interesting question, Maria. I have been described as 'scary' but I've no idea why - not how I see myself AT ALL ('fluffy' more like). But one friend described me as an unreconstructed Elizabethan courtier (which she claims means I am 'witty' - but I think she was just being 'clever').

Maria Zannini said...

Maybe you're fluffy-scary. --In an Elizabethan sort of way, of course.


I've been called scary, but I have no idea where they get that idea since I am quite small and unassuming.

Methinks we are simply misunderstood.

Joanne said...

Well I kind of like what your friends say, it shows that you know yourself well, and no one's going to mess with you! So I wouldn't mind a little of that, an affirmation of my choices and place in life.

Helen Ginger said...

That is so funny. I love what your friends say about you. You should print that out and hang it somewhere so you can see it every day.


Straight From Hel

Maria Zannini said...

Joanne: My hubby says I'm too mean for one woman. But I think he was exaggerating. LOL.

Maria Zannini said...

Helen: I think that saying has been around a while, but it does fit me perfectly.

I try to stay one step ahead of the devil--otherwise we'd have to dance and I have two left feet.

But I do like the quote and it might be cute to make a sign out of it.

Heather B. Moore said...

That's classic, Maria. I think I might be the same type of personality ;)

Maria Zannini said...

Heather, I would not doubt it for a minute.

The devil probably has nightmares about you. LOL.

Marian said...

Maria, is the skeleton in the picture because of the devil comment? It looked so creepy. I read the blog post quickly, expecting to read that your dogs had dug up someone's bones or something.

Maria Zannini said...

Marian: LOL!

My lazy dogs! The only thing they dig up are my potatoes.

Bony here is supposed to be the devil. I couldn't find a picture of an exasperated devil so this had to do.

Shelley Munro said...

Probably the quiet achiever. I don't say much. :)

Maria Zannini said...

Shelley: that right before all hell breaks loose?


I'm telling you. It's the quiet ones that are dangerous. :o)
