Hey, we're taking a short break. We will be back soon!

Awk...ward

Awkward is my specialty. 

My saint of a sister came and sat with our flu sick kids tonight so I could join Chris at a work function. I didn’t know what I was getting into, I just knew I needed a break from tissues and Tylenol, so I said I would go. 

It was a drinking/mingling event. Where you are supposed to talk to the other humans around you. 

One of his colleague’s wives said to me, “oh, you make jewelry, don’t you?” And I said, “yes, I do.” And then stared at her. 😂😳🙄

I want to people, guys! I’m just so bad at it! Like what is actually wrong with me that I can’t make small talk with strangers?! 

Is there like a class on that? Are there “how to interact with other adult humans” classes at the community college or something? Cuz ya girl needs some help. 

All my other awkward humans, give me a 👊 for solidarity. I need to know I’m not the only weirdo out here.
