Sociable?

Not I.

I wish I was though.

I remember being told I was too loud, boisterous, and unladilike, as a kid.

Several years ago it was mentioned of my daughter “Hmm. She has a very strong personality, you’ll have to watch that.”

“You’ll have to watch that one”, and various versions of that, was frequently said about me as a kid. Often in my presence.

Just what is so bad about being loud and boisterous, or having a strong personality, and what exactly is being implied with the whole “have to watch that” business?

Frankly, I’m rather offended by the entire thing.
