Is it just me or are certain people always a little too fervent to the point of being obnoxious in explaining their choices?
Example #1: A group of people are at a bar or some other setting where alcohol is served. When asked what they want to drink this person not only declines but insists on giving a detailed explanation of the (anti-depressant) medication he is taking and how he isn’t allowed to drink any alcohol.
When this happens (and it did every time I was around this guy) we all wished he would talk less and drink more.
Example #2: The stereotypical, fashionably dressed-for-success, luxury car driving, over-achieving, Type-A outgoing personality who, while I wouldn’t describe her as anorexic, is definitely slim. However, for reasons that are not physically obvious in any way, she is on a diet. Every time an opportunity to eat occurs she has to go into an explanation of why nothing out of whatever is available to eat or on the menu is allowed by her “sugar-busters”(?) diet. She is constantly moving and burning calories and is the only person I’ve observed playing imaginary ‘air-drums’ to songs on the radio while driving a vehicle.
If she is ever hospitalized I hope someone accidentally switches her I-V and hooks her up to a bag/bottle of pure sucrose syrup.
