A corky personality must be effervescent, bubbly, buoyant. Unpredictable. Quirky.
What does it mean when someone calls you corky?
One of the counselors at my camp was leaving all of the kids notes and mine said this:
“You are so funny and I love your corky personality. You’ve done amazing this week and remember, there’s no place to go but up!” The last part was something all the counselors said frequently. Is corky a bad thing? I didn’t know whether to feel insulted or not.
Fear of raw meat contributes to corky personality
“She really hates kids…the smaller the child the more afraid she is,” best friend and roommate Sarah Luckasson said. Jessica Pedersen’s hatred for children may be the least of her corky personality features and her independent attitude is what makes her who she is.
There is no way to predict the bobbing cork of fate.
Less easy to understand are corks untethered from fate.
