I wasn't. I can extol the virtues, plots, and themes of several works of literature. I can make reading MacBeth and The Scarlet Letter actually fun. I can diagram sentences like nobody's business, spot a typographical error a mile away, and instantly recognize an improperly formatted paper or incorrect citation. I can lecture all year on Metaphysics and worldview. Balance our checkbook? Nope. My wife has the head for maths, and even thinks it is fun. We all have our strengths.
You must be the life of any party! I'm kidding; I'm fascinated by language.
Nope. My wife is the extravert. She's never met a stranger and deftly navigates all manner of social situations. I'm perfectly content to sit quietly on the sidelines and watch from a safe distance. When our governor issued the initial 6-week "stay at home" order last year, my daughter and I high-fived each other. When other folks bristled and complained at the subsequent extensions, we just shrugged and said we'd been doing our best to avoid people our entire lives.
I tell my students that they get to see me at my most outgoing--and that's only through a combination of passion for the material we're covering, a nap after lunch, and an entire pot of coffee throughout the day.
