All of these things are wonderful and spot on.
I especially laughed at #7
7) We secretly love it when you cancel plans.
I like being with you, but finding out I suddenly don’t need to be “on” and it wasn’t actually me that backed out? – priceless! Don’t worry if you have to cancel, I’m probably thrilled to be able to stay in my pajamas.
Too true. The only people I can turn “off” around are my immediate family and SO (significant other).
And by immediate I mean my parents, my brother and my maternal aunts and cousins.
In other news, cat-sitting in Avon is allowing me aaalll the introverted “recharge” time I need (one week) to recover from quite possibly the worst job experience I have ever had.
And I’ve had more than a dozen jobs in the past seven years so I feel like that lends weight to the “worst” designation.
I actually can’t think of any job that’s even come close. I’ve worked in coffee shops, restaurants, retail stores, offices, a bookstore, even a salon. None of those ever made me feel nearly as uncomfortable and unproductive as this one. Too much hostility and indecisiveness. I’m too glad it’s over.
So finally, I’m on the writer’s path, and I think it’s sticking this time. Cool.
