One of the best things anyone ever called me was laconic. I don't think it was a compliment, but I love it anyway. I was reminded of it when someone at work today said they didn't know if I was there because I was/am so quiet. Via Merriam-Webster:
using or involving the use of a minimum of words : concise to the point of seeming rude or mysterious(Emphasis mine)
Latin laconicus Spartan, from Greek lakōnikos; from the Spartan reputation for terseness of speechDoesn't that sound like me? (In an audible kind of way. I write more than is necessary, obviously.)
First Known Use: 1589
Also I got two "like it" to posting my baby picture. So what if they were from my mom and my husband? They're my two favorite blog readers anyhow! Today is Nov. 3, but I don't have a picture of me at age three. When I go home maybe I can scan a few in from the family albums and do the 1-30 birthday project toward the end of the month.
