Methinks (new favorite word, I do not care if I'm using it wrong, it's awesome)...where was I? Oh, right. Methinks that I've been making people a bit uncomfortable this past week with my tendency to...well...over share.
Coworker: Where were you this morning? I was paging you...
Me: Uh, well. I had a doctors' appointment.
Nosy Coworker: Oh. Are you okay? You look fine (thanks, I know. I'm gorgeous.)
Me: Uh. Yeah. I just...well...see about a year ago I had cancer.
Coworker (regretting ever paging me, regretting ever talking to me): Gasp!
Me: Um, yeah. It's seriously, it's like really, um, it's no big deal...it was just thyroid cancer (really, it wasn't bad) and you know, I just had to get these shots...
Coworker: Oh. What kind?
Me: Uh, in my butt.
Coworker (walking away...clearly scarred): Oh wow. Feel better. Bye.
Why? WHY DO I HAVE TO OVERSHARE WHEN I'M UNCOMFORTABLE?
This always happens to me.
