what the problem is

Stephen told me that extroverts get energy from being around other people while introverts get energy from being alone. Which explains why I get so exhausted at parties. And why I like going to lunch by myself. The thing is, the rest of the world doesn't really see my lonesome dining as awesome. They see it as sad. Accordingly, they treat me weird. Most people pretend I'm invisible. Like the two people in the restaurant, who, I kid you not, were no more than six inches away from me and gave each other a side hug, facing me. I was a part of their hug. They then proceeded to discuss what I have to assume is highly confidential information. I'd make such a great anti-social Private Eye.


  1. have you seen that episode of friends?

    Rachel: what's wrong with a woman eating alone?
    Chandler: well obviously something. she's eating alone.

  2. I do this too, Meg.

    Maybe someday we can eat alone, together. Like at separate tables at the same restaurant. It's a date.


Don't be shy.
