I find those people the most fun. My grandmother taught me that one. When she was alive, she’d tell a story of when she was working for an engineering place, some oil refinery – Exxon I think] – and there was this one co-worker that would ALWAYS say the opposite of what she said.
One day, she found the secret: She started agreeing with everything the woman said. EVERYTHING.
Drove her co-worker nuts! One day she got mad and said, “Stop agreeing with me! Why are you always agreeing with me? It’s annoying!”
My grandmother’s response?
She also got me into Doctor Who when I was 8 and we’d watch “Future Technology” / “Future Science” shows together. Total introvert. Looked like Velma from Scooby-Doo.
“She sounds 6.2 metric tons of awesome.
That’s where you get it”
“Tbh I feel like I just accomplished something.”
You did! I see her in a new light now. Nobody else in the family really understood her but I did. I just never thought of the significance of that.
Yeah – she did. My other family members did too, but I think she understood my obsessive nerdy side best, when I’d babble about some new thing I just learned or whatever.
