Wait, was I always incurably weird?

In line at the grocery store:

Dianna: Oh, damn, you know, I brought my own bag but I left it out by my bike. Do you mind if I run and get it?
Checker: No, go ahead.
Dianna: Thanks. *runs out and comes back with a reusable grocery tote* Sorry I'm kind of spacey; I just got back from Berkeley.
Checker: ....
Dianna: Oh, I don't mean that like it sounds. I was just visiting my old co-op.
Checker: ...
Dianna: Okay, okay, it sounds kind of hippie. But I really just went to see my friend before she leaves the country. She's joining the Peace Cor-- oh.

I swear I once lived in the suburbs and drove everywhere and bought food in disposable bags like normal people. I swear it on the bosom of Mother Earth hersel-- oh.

By the way, the answer to the question posed in your title - from someone who has known you for nearly half of your short life - is an unequivocated "yes."
