Role reversal

If someone is a shy type do not write him off as a weak person.
Edison, Einstein, Lincoln and even Brad Pitt are among a list of shy people, but we know their achievements.
I have a friend who will just blush for everything.
If I ask him, “How are you buddy?” his reply would be, “fhinee…hehe..” (Translate as fine)
If I tell him, “that girl was looking at you,” his face would turn red with discomfiture.
One day I told a female colleague to help him shed his introverted nature. She was a dynamic journalist and was confident she could “brainwash” and make him extroverted. We three went for a tea session and halfway through I left them alone.
After a few minutes, I returned and asked the duo, “How are you guys enjoying?”
The shy guy beamed with enthusiasm “Fabulous.” And the talkative girl’s response was subdued. “Fhinee…hehe…"

  17. I'm with Sujata - more please. I'd love to know what happened to reverse the roles. We have a saying here that the quiet ones are always the worst - perhaps this is proof of that and your friend was not as shy as he led you to believe.
