Social Anxiety plus Employee Appreciation

Today was the annual Employee Appreciation day at the college. We were treated to a picnic. outside. in 100 degree heat. We were also treated to the rest of the day off.

Now, let me set the scene. Dozens of round tables that seat ten people. Hundreds of people all talking together. And me. I didn't know a soul there. I set by myself, until a bunch of strangers invaded my table, and began all talking, loudly to each other.

In the end I picked up my free stuff and left before I ate. It was hot, I was alone, I was intensely uncomfortable.

Now I'm home, eating cheese fries (yes, comfort food), and hiding from the heat. Next is laundry.

Happy Friday to me.
