I've also learned to use this to my advantage. You wouldn't believe how quickly I can clear a spot at the beach by approaching someone and whispering "I can't believe you're sitting this close to the water" and then leaving.
I thrive on snark, witty banter, and coffee. Not necessarily all at once. But sometimes all at once.
I spent some time living in Ireland, and it was awesome. I have a special relationship with Guinness. Also whilst abroad these things happened:
a) I was accidentally dragged (in a group) to a crack den in London by a Welsh man who wouldn't stop talking about his small penis.
b) I was blessed by the Pope. It was terrifying until it was over.
c) I learned that when you attend the Olympics in Turin at the last minute, you must sleep in a train station. And so must everyone else.
Someone once said to me "I'm used to your unbridled heat."
