Sometimes. I was very shy in school. In addition, my mother was anything but.

Sometimes very outgoing mothers have shy or quiet children. You didn’t get much chance to speak.

It started in 3rd grade. I sat at a round table with 3 girls who were neighbors to each other. They were always talking and I was listening. They called themselves the "Chatterboxes" and me the "chatter listener".
My mother was 3rd of 5 and first girl. Her gf lived with her when he was in town. I think she was doted on quite a bit. Her brothers could not go to park or cousins without her. Took 7 years to have another girl. She must have been spoiled

She probably was very spoiled, the only girl for a long time in a big family.  In those days, girls were often spoiled, from what I’ve read.

Probably, as much as anyone could be during the Great Depression. A flour sack was made into her Sunday best. I have a picture of her in it.

Depends on who the other person is and what the topic is.
