Some of the smartest people I’ve ever known were extroverts in the extreme
Who considered me one of their best friends — but hardly knew the sound of my voice
Who never seemed to notice if I got my hair cut or wore a new dress
Who careened through their days at lightning speed
Who laughed with a million friends
Who blurted out every thought they ever had
Whose activities were big and noisy; then gone and forgotten
Who said what they thought and never looked back
Who only seemed to notice the fireworks and never the fire
But then out of the blue they would utter
The wisest and deepest of truths
And I’d be blown away
Then they’d be off again, whizzing through the crowded traffic of their busy lives

And who never knew, after 20 years of friendship, that you were a writer. Haha! Oh well.
And if she is reading this right now she’d have no idea it was her! LOL!
A classic Linda – analytical yet soft to the touch; observational yet true. Bravo!
Thanks Mike. I’m glad you liked it.
I know people like that …. I guess we all do… Diane
So true, Diane. 😀
I wonder if they see themselves that way? People who have dozens of “best friends” can’t be a friend to any of them.
That is so true. And that’s a good question, I wonder how they do see themselves.
I think they wouldn’t have the faintest idea what you – or any of us here – were on about, Linda.
I think you’re right. I read recently about an author who used real people in his life as characters in all his novels, and he said no one, even once, ever recognized themselves.
Maybe he was a REALLY crap writer…?
LOL!! Good point.
Very nicely put. Only non-extroverts would be able to observe and record their activities!
Thank you Jackie!! I love the name Jackie. It’s my daughter’s name. And even though it’s well known, it’s not common! Thanks for coming by Jackie!!
Beautiful, insightful, whimsical. I suddenly found myself on a hilltop with a lovely view. Your hidden depths are showing, my dear Linda, but it’s good to let ’em out once in awhile… : )
Ah, thank you so much Mark, your comments always brighten my day! And I hope you have a wonderful Christmas holidays with your family and friends!!
