I can usually express myself pretty well in writing but when it comes to verbal communication I'm like a four year old. I often mix up my words, stutter, and make everything worse. I couldn't talk my way out of a wet paper bag. For whatever reason it's not as bad when I'm on Skype or talking on the phone. But when I'm face to face with someone I just end up with my foot in my mouth. As a result I don't talk much. I wonder how many people who have met me briefly IRL think I'm an idiot.
