I am such a dufus. I went to the CBC '10 Girls' Night Out tonight. But I really don't know anyone else there. So I stand there, awkwardly, like a wallflower at a dance, not knowing whom to approach since everyone else there seems to know at least one other person and are all engaged in conversation. I don't want to be rude and walk up to someone and jump right into the conversation, but nobody really invites you in either.
So, after about 20 minutes of painful discomfort, eyes desperately searching for familiar faces (why can't you bloggers whose blogs I frequent look like your pictures???), I finally give up and leave. I feel like such a schmuck. I just can't handle an uncomfortable social situation like that.
I won't be able to make it to tomorrow's daytime classes, since the husband had to work, but I'm planning on trying again at tomorrow night's social event. Let's see if I can beat 20 minutes. At least I stayed 15 minutes longer this time than the last time I attempted to attend a blogging girl's night out.
