"I thought you would be really gregarious. But you're not."
"Ummm..I am always like this. It takes time for me to warm up to people. "
The "why" always gets me. Would anyone ask the same question of S? No. Hmph.
"I guess I am a reserved person. I don't talk much in person until I know them real well.."
"No, you're not. I've read all your blogs and you are very out going."
"Erm..yeah, I am. But I've met you in person for only 5 minutes.."
Hehe. Weak laugh. Now I feel like I am Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. Full of conceit and disdain.
When under pressure to talk, I can barely think of anything meaningful. Has this ever happened to anyone? For god's sake, I can't even make some comment about the weather! Ugh.
"Hmph. You put out all these personal things on your blog but you won't talk to me in person? I think you're being very rude to me."
Mental head-thunk. How do I get into these conversations?
"NO! I am not being rude..."
"So your blogs are not the true you?"
"Well, they are...but I get to selectively post what I want there..which may have misled you.."
"You're a false woman."
That does it. What does a "false woman" even mean? Is it like "false teeth" or something?
I start talking weird gibberish because I am under pressure to talk. Which only goes to re-inforce the opinion that I've lost my marbles. No way to build a good readership.
