Smart/​Jack/​Dumb Ass

I’ve decided I tend to be excessively jerkstore when I’m hanging out with friends and making small talk. I think it is a combination of being slightly bored with small talk, and only-​child-​trying-​to-​be-​the-​center-​of-​attention-​ism. As soon as something interesting catches my attention, however, I become my basic ever-​curious self. Now that I realize why I’m an ass so often, I can consciously work to be less boorish. This is science.
