Super antisocial? Sound like chronic shyness to me! I understand that, believe me. There are many that suffer with that condition, believe me.

Victor was ok. The world around him was infuriating though!

Yes, and don't forget the old wonky screwdriver for opening the tins. I've had the same one for maybe 25 years!

When I was younger I would have been mortified if I was told I looked or sounded like my parents. I suppose immaturity played it's part in that, but when you just want to express your individuality to the world, it's the last thing you wanted to hear.

Now, I'm delighted anyone says I look or sound like my parents. They were really good people, and excellent parents. I know I was so lucky to have them. If someone says to me now 'your mother / father used to say that', it makes me smile. They thought I wasn't listening
