Tarah: A users guide


There are so many people out there who do not ‘get’ me. They might think they do, but they don’t. So I’ll attempt to give you some practical tips on how to win my heart or friendship or both. I’ll also explain some of my behaviour.

  1. I’m not always talkative. My natural state is to be shy and quiet.
  2. I sometimes get the chills and let out involuntary shouts when that happens. It’s not you; it’s me.
  3. I do not like ice in my water or whisky.
  4. I do subtitles on everything. Yes, even on SATC.
  5. I’m messy. Deurmekaar soos klapperhaar.
  6. Forgetful is Tarah’s middle name. Keys, sunglasses, cellphone, there’s almost always something I forget to take with me.
  7. I have a volatile personality.
  8. I’m trying to sort out my finances, my living arrangements and my head. This means I’m forever frowning at some spot just above your head. It’s not you; it’s me.
  9. My self-control is getting better — I’m back at the gym and all. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be good forever. Most of the time I can’t spell self-control to save my life.

    With you on the quiet thing. People don’t seem to get the ‘only speak when you have something to say’ thing.
