About half the people whom i know (including me) think themselves to be eccentric, a little if not very. I agree that it is an individual's perspective.
After some amount of knowing each other, the declaration is made. Either in the form of an answer to a question or as a statement itself. If i extend this equation saying that fifty percent of the people known to me think themselves to be so, and hence half this world assume themselves to be so, the conclusion that is arrived at can be quite shocking!
Or it maybe this, proclaiming myself to be a little crazy makes somebody raise their eyebrow's (a reflex action?). And it pleases me, for people consider me and my habits strange.
Pompous remarks, huh?!
