Flavor #32 : Which One Do You Prefer as a Friend?

A local ice cream parlor invites you to create a new wacky flavor. It needs to channel the very essence of your personality. What’s in it?

The ice cream color is blue mixed with purple and a slight streak of yellow, when you put it in your mouth you will feel sour at first, then you taste the sweetness. Once you eat it, that’s all you want to eat. People around me know that I’m a bit individualistic daily, but not in a bad way, really. I tend not to talk to people I’m not close with, which perhaps make me look like a egocentric bastard. But once I know them, I joined their conversation few times, then I could go with the flow, I would tell them stories (not about myself if they don’t put interest in it), and I’ll have them laugh.

I’m trying daily to make people happy, but often times I’m not in state of happiness itself, so I can’t spread the happiness around me. I think it’s better for me (and probably for others too) to have people see me as a cold bastard then found me to be a nice guy, rather than people see me as “the nice guy” and later found me as a selfish bastard.
