When I told a friend that I had been talking to some mutual acquaintances about a recent event we had both attended, he commented, "No doubt they were asking about me."
I guffawed and asked, "Why on earth would you think that you were the topic of conversation when there were important people at the party?"
He said, "Well, you know.", with the suggestion being that he would be the ONLY focus of interest. I answered, "Well, actually, I do NOT know why you would immediately think others would be asking about you, except that you are very narcissistic and think that everything is all about you!"
