    Where were you originally born?
    Of course I'd heard it before, but no one ever defined it. People just say "You're a character", but there really isn't any context in which to create a definition when you're just talking normally and someone calls you a character. Get me?

    I just hadn't bothered asking anyone before. lol

    Was my definition/explanation of why people use the word "character" insufficient? Well, perhaps I'll attempt to explain it better, the word is used in order to describe/ascribe a person as that of being interesting to the point of being entertaining enough, and worthy of potentially being a "character" in a story/movie/play.

    No no no, it was fine definition. I get it now. Next time someone calls me a character, I can smile and nod while knowing what they're talking about, rather than just doing it cuz I have no idea.

    Glad to be of etymological service.

    I like to do things thoroughly.

    Man, I haven't been pollywog hunting for quite some time...must be at least 10 years. I should go find some!
