    I prefer to remain quiet and in the background.

    I tend to stay quiet, until someone says something that requires a snarky response. As my Middle Daughter said this morning, my mother invented snark.

    It depends on the crowd, of course, but if I even smell that I have a receptive audience, it’s like I’m on stage. Especially in family and familiar settings. Sometimes, I actually think in my head that I should stop with the theatrics, but if I’m on a roll, I just can’t. It’s obnoxious.

    I’m usually in the background, too – definitely not “the life of the party”. But, again, like l’empress, I can be pretty quick with some sarcasm.

    I quietly play the fool. Definitely prefer the shadows, but I do have my bon mot moments.

    (BTW, I posted a picture of that statue, which is, I believe, in Stratford, on FB recently. I took a picture of an actor I know who played a jester under it!)
