I can understand the reluctance to speak about ourselves. Humility and the possibility of shame keep us from being completely open.

I at one time, did volunteer work through my job for the Rockford, Illinois schools. I gave classes to children from 2-6 grade on the digestive system. After a few tries I had these classes literally eating out of the palms of my hand. I always brought a bag of Hershey's Kisses and made sure everyone saw the bag. the big finally was always taking the smallest kid in the class holding them upside down and having them swallow up. That was so much fun.


Once I realized that the information I was providing was important to my listeners I could relax and give it my all.

Now I get a laugh when I call peoples names at work. They think I sound like The Price Is Right's announcer. COME ON DOWNNNNNNNN.
I don't even realize I'm doing it. everyone gets a laugh and it makes work that much more tolerable.

I see dead people...

Where do we draw the line between stuff that's being kept secret, and stuff that we just haven't told anyone.

So that could mean a secret is anything that people on here don't know.

So for me that's everything except my first name, degree level, a vague job description, what car i drive and my hair colour.

Edit, and a few hobbies listed on my profile page.

I don't know what car you drive.

Guys secrets can come back and haunt one. Remember that these forums are public and searchable. So be careful. PM are one thing, posting here is quite another.

I have one extra body part, but to keep the secret i'm not going to tell what it is.
Unless anyone guesses, doesn't usually take long.

I have an extra one too. A few hundred years ago they would have burnt us at the stake.

I've had a quick check and count-up, don't seem to have anything extra above
and beyond normal. Can't say the same about me insides though, can't check
them so easily...

I may be from the North, but i haven't got any extra digits. A few hundred years ago they wouldn't have been able to see this extra, if they had they may even have thought it normal, us being men. That may give a clue.
