Well, and sometimes they ask about something where it's so plain damned obvious that it's like they're asking, "Do you have a pulse?"

"We have a new baby niece. First one."
"Oh, are you excited?"
"...." [What the hell is wrong with you? What the hell do you think is wrong with me? Of course I'm excited, are you stupid? If I wasn't excited, would I say to a relative stranger, "Ehn, I don't care really, relatives are a dime a dozen, and if you've seen one baby, you've seen 'em all"? If I wasn't excited, would I have brought it up? Oh, wait: they're not from here. Right. Must be gentle:] "Oh, yah."

Yah. That's why I think I was wrong on that one.

LOL. Yeah that, but also for me excitement tends to turn immediately into fear, so I damp it down and don't like being reminded of it.

"Are you excited?"

"SHUSH DON'T SAY THAT WORD THE GOBLINS WILL GET US!!!!!"
