I had to chuckle at that word “peppiness”. I refer to myself as Eeyore…or at least that is my typical presentation. When a principal in a very messed up small school referred to me as “peppy” I almost got whiplash from it. I’m the opposite of peppy, so it was a reflection of how dismal that environment was in comparison. The world needs some of us more restrained folks, otherwise it would bounce right out of the solar system, never to be seen again. :) Enjoyed your article. You get to be exactly who you are.
