Day 01 — The one thing that it seems like everyone else on the planet is into but I just cannot stand is…
The one thing that it seems like everyone else on the planet is into but I just cannot stand is pleasant conversation with strangers.
Let's not, please.
I'm not exactly unfriendly - I just prefer to be the one to seek out my conversations. I'm sweet, and pleasant, and downright hilarious - unless I don't know you, in which case I am awkward and brusque (with annoyed undertones). And I don't like feeling obligated to talk just to fill space. I delight in silence, honestly. Please don't think you need to fill it up with mindless chatter. I will go out of my way to avoid human interaction, in hopes that I won't have to feign interest in someone's attempt to relate to my life. Self checkouts at the grocery store were made for people like me.
I suppose this is something I should work on. My toddler is a social butterfly, and I'd kind of hate to see him turn into an angry little misanthrope like his mama.
