Just one word

In Ramblings on December 10, 2005 by Cody McComas

I sent an email to a number if people in my address book. This is what it said,

“Describe me in ONE WORD…and just one word. Send that one word to me in an email reply (ONLY TO ME, none of this “Reply to All” crap), then send this message to your friends and see how many strange things people say about you! This could be fun (or scary, or a little of both). Just reply and send me my word back. Be HONEST!!! Then forward this message on to your friends and see what they say about you!!! I’m doing it out of curiosity I guess…amuse me.
–Cody Russell McComas”

Here are some of the responses. I found it to be an interesting and telling experiment about myself, and about the people who replied.

Passionate
Gracious
Suave
Wirey…(not in a bad way)
Impassioned
Quirky
Alive
Individual
Delve
Silly!!!!!!!!!
Free
Old Spice
Brainy!!
Vontade
ONE-OF-A-KIND…(does that count for one word? it was the first thing that came to mind)

  1. I didn’t get around to replying, but I had decided on “alive.”

  2. And it makes me sad when I would describe you as “self-trapped” (i.e. trapped by self), which does also happen once in a while.

    Or am I projecting some of me onto you? Or are we sometimes alike in that way?

    Yes and yes.
