Whither we mean to or not, we as a society tend to categorize everything. It is really annoying when it comes to people, because putting labels on human beings tends to identify them with one characteristic. For instance: I was talking with my friend Chris last night and he says that he usually tells people that he loves working on computers, and then immediately follows up with his other passion: playing guitar. Why? because we cannot sum up an entire person's entity with one description. But we do it anyway.
For years people who have not met Kyle (co-workers, classmates, online friends) have asked me what kind of guy he is, and it always kinda annoyed me. No matter what I picked, nothing ever seemed to 'fit' Kyle. Suddenly the map of the high school cafeteria from 'Mean Girls' comes to mind: Jocks, nerds, band-geeks, etc. Kyle really loves baseball, but he has not played any sports since he was in his early teens. He likes to read, he likes dramas, chick-flicks, & war movies, he can be sensitive, loves animals, likes to golf (barf), is very into gardening, likes camping, old buildings, collecting coins, and thrifting. Seems to me the best description would be: Human Being.
However, for the sake of categorizing people, if I HAD to pick a label for Kyle, it would probably be this: Old man.
