I had a wonderful afternoon doing what I love doing most of all: sharing my knowledge of birds and wildlife with someone who is eager to learn. We did a troll round the fens in the Land Rover and saw some good birds and some good sights.
It's the teacher in me, dontcha know. No, dear, I was not "showing off", something I hope I never do. I was just helping someone to improve their identity skills. Well, ok, maybe I did show off a little. After all, as Irma la Douce might have said, if you've got it, flaunt it. But I was very restrained: I only talked for 90% of the time.
For me, that's taciturn.
