While I was helping a friend with her essay, she said that when she first saw me she told her kids that I looked like a woman who was very intellectual. That made me chuckle. I've never thought of myself that way. I guess she always sees me writing and presumes I must have a lot of stuff in my head. Actually, I do have a lot to say but there's usually nothing in my head.
As they say, empty buckets do make the most noise.
