Season 3/ Episode 6: Are You the Person Others Perceive You to Be?
In All Seriousness
Be Who You Are
In this podcast episode, Jill and Tony discuss the many times they are perceived to be someone they are not.
For example, most strangers cannot guess what Tony does for a living, and they are surprised when they do learn his profession. Many initially think Jill does not have a sense of humor, but they find themselves laughing at things she says and truly believes.
Neither is bothered by how they are initially judged, but they urged listeners to take the time to observe and get to know someone before they make any conclusions about who that person really is.

Responding to an earlier podcast I talked about the book Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan. In her memoir Corrigan says that when she was a child her mother told her that her father was the glitter, the star, and she was the glue. I think that Denis is the star and I’m the glue in our relationship, and while I’m comfortable being a “glue type,” I must watch my tendency to fade. It gives a wrong impression about me. One of his friends from before we were married thought Denis was even the force behind how we decorated the house! What a misconception. I have been instrumental in many of our decisions and adventures that others give him the sole credit.
Jill, I think you’re a little naïve about alcoholism for which a flask is a strong indicator. Listen to Tony on this one. Hahahaha. Oh, and Denis loves it when I give him a pedicure, just thinks I don’t do it often enough. Life–so much to do–so little time.
We like that analogy about glitter and glue.
Jill thought your comment about the flask was funny. Tony has been choosing a lot of movies lately in which one of the characters has a flask, and he/she is always an alcoholic. So, maybe you’re right. 😄
