Are You Secretly An Introvert?

Author Donald Miller has some pretty enlightening articles on his blog. Recently I stumbled upon this and was amazed to realize that, yes, I’m an introvert! “23 Signs You’re Secretly an Introvert” –
I live in a family spilling over with extroverts. Their boundless energy simply overwhelms me at times. Even today, my 78 year-old mother can run circles around me. Each Sunday during football season, for the past thirty years, she’s made huge batches of cookies for an entire football team! And, don’t even get me started on how the woman tailgates. Let’s just say that Miss Leigh’s tailgate parties, on green campus lawns, require the assistance of several strong football players and a crew of grandsons to help load and unload the furniture!
So, in light of my new found identity as an introvert and with football season just around the corner, I’d like to make an announcement. I believe I’ll sit this season out and do some writing, or float in a boat, or simply enjoy the benefits of my new identity. Nah, I’ll do the right thing and drive my parents to some games, smile and cheer and yell my heart out. But inside, you’ll know the truth about me. ~ Go Tigers and Roll Tide ~
