ok here's something you might not know about me. I'm really anti-social. I really don't like being around a bunch of people. Even if I know everyone in the room, I just kinda chill in the corner and watch. I'm a really quiet person by nature. I have no problem sitting around not saying anything. Whats wrong with silence? I worry about people who always have to be saying something. I'm reminded of this because my god-sister hit me up and asked if I wanted to go on a couples retreat over labor day weekend. First off I'm not a "couple" so there is the first problem, but second I don't want to be in a house with a bunch of other people. They are going to rent out a huge house and stay there for a couple days. I like my privacy. Ihats why I could never have a room mate, I like MY space, I only share with my daughter and the women i'm involved with. I like throwing parties but I want them people to go home too. I think I mentioned before that I turned my guest room into a closet. The only 2 beds in my house are mine and my daughters. Guests sleep on the couch lol. So needless to say a house full of people I don't know for a couple days is not my idea of fun. I'm not looking to make new friends. btw she really just wants to meet new couples to hang out with, she is trying to make that transition from single friends to married friends.
So anyway I was reminded of my anti-socialness again when one of my former co-workers hit me up to go to cirquedusoleil when it comes to town. he's trying to get the old crew together and hang out for a night. If you have never been to a cirquedusoleil you should really go. I took my mom one year and it rocked. it's kinda artsy and nobody speaks english but trust me you'll like it.
I want to go but i'm sitting her debating whether I want to go with this group or just find a date and go on my own time. I'm leaning towards finding a date, I don't want to be bothered with them. Funny thing is that when we worked together we were like a family, and even when I see them out and about I stop and chat for a minute. It's not that I don't like them I just can't see hanging out with them. I think I'd have more fun doing my own thing.
