We had a friend spend the late afternoon and evening with us tonight. She came over initially to drop off something, but that turned into conversation, which turned into her taking a conference call from our kitchen table, which turned into dinner, which turned into more conversation. I wasn’t very talkative but that was mostly because I didn’t have that much to add to things. That tends to be the case with me socially, sitting back and letting others dominate conversation. I’ve always done it. I think it’s because I was taught at a young age not to interrupt when other people are talking, and conversations naturally flow from one topic to another, so usually by the time I can hop in and not feel like I’m stepping on anyone’s toes the conversation has typically moved on, so I just sit and listen mostly. I should try to figure out a way of breaking that habit.
It’s been a productive day today, but it was an early start – I was up at 3:30 am thanks to a splitting headache and a horrible backache, and I never got back to bed. That means that I’m super tired tonight and really want nothing more than to go lie down.
