It happens to the best of us. We get so caught up in our own lives and minds that we forget that we are being extra. It’s whatever though.
Look, I’ll be the first to admit it: I’m extra AF. Once I get myself worked up, there’s really no stopping me from being extra. Somebody wronged me, and I’m going to talk about it for the next five days. I’m not even sorry about it. That’s just who I’ve become honestly.
For those of you who are wondering what the heck I am rambling on about *everybody is always thinking this*. So, here is the official Urban Dictionary definition of “being extra”: When someone does something that is just unnecessary and OVER THE TOP… like just DONT DO IT!
Insert photo of me, every single day of my life. Literally, right now. I can’t even stop it. This is who I have become. I have reached my final form. Please accept me for who I am.
Signs you are being extra
From one fabulous queen of style and grace to another—too much? Not enough? We’re going to unravel the signs and symptoms of being extra; as if it were some sort of terrible condition or something.
I’m just going to premise this entire list by saying that if you are being extra, chances are you know you are and just don’t care. I respect that whole-heartedly. You do you, boo.
#1 You talk with your hands a lot. This could be my French Canadian makeup, but, boy oh boy, do I ever talk with my hands a lot. Today at sushi I almost knocked over an entire plate of rolls because I was in the middle of a story when our waitress arrived with our food. Do I need to be flailing my arms around like a chimp? No, but I can’t be tamed.
#2 You take themed parties very seriously. It is your time to shine, baby! You’re not just going to throw on a wig and call it a day. You make sure every detail is perfect, even down to the fake nails and earrings!
#3 You talk really loudly. You want to be heard! If you tell a story, everybody and their dog is going to listen to it, and there isn’t any shame in that. Tell your story, girlfriend, and tell it with pride.
