making people feel uncomfortable, 24/7.

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.

Example #1

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.

  1. You were right, cancer is kind of funny. Unless I get it.

  2. HAHAHA gross!

    For future reference, when people ask what kind of shot you received, you tell them what kind of medicine it was. Not where they stuck you with the needle.

    Between your shot and my felony, 67 Ten Eyck is having the worst day ever!

  5. wanna talk about oversharing? how about telling a boy on your FIRST DATE about how you thought he raped you in your sleep ( aka took advantage of your blacked out state) and gave you an STD? and then telling him that you guess you just cut your vagina shaving?

    ...I tend to overshare when i'm nervous.

  6. In your efforts to show how you overshare, Gen, you've overshared by telling that disturbing story.
