Shoeless Lou came for dinner last night. We had a very nice visit, and Lou, insightful friend she is, said a few things that really made me ponder.
I'm feeling a little socially stagnant lately. This is an awful thing to feel (and say), as I have plans through the first weekend of June, and I can often be found out a lunch or after work with friends. But, I'm simultaneously missing the Trinity girls painfully, and battling with the little voice in the back of my mind that cautions that these friends, too, will disappear as others have.
That comes from being somewhat awkward as a child, and getting along much better with adults than my peers. And having untrustworthy friends while growing up. And losing - in a bizarre incident I still don't understand - my best friend from high school.
So where does Lou come in to this? With her observation that she's an introvert, and so are many of her friends. Most of my friends are too, and you're fabulous people, but a room full of introverts can sometimes be very, very quiet. Maybe we're all just having a simultaneously introverted moment. But can somebody please call me when you're feeling social again.
