I know someone who loves to talk about themselves. In fact, I looked up “self-centered” in the dictionary, and their picture was beside the word.
I tense up whenever I’m in their company, because I have to pretend I’m interested about hearing the details of their life for the next 90 minutes.
They drive me crazy.
I’d like to contribute to the conversation, but they never stop talking. I’m bored to tears.
Sometimes, I just want to grab them and say, “PLEASE, try to say something without the words “I” or “me” in the sentence!”
But wait a second… everything I’ve just said has “I” or “me” in the sentence.
The red fox jumped nimbly over the fence.
There, I did it! No “I” or “me” for two sentences in a row.
Self-improvement isn’t that hard, after all…
