Maybe I can be there for their divorce?

-Day 79.-

So, the hubs and I are invited to a wedding.
To those of you who know me and those that don’t will now learn, I AM AN ANTI-SOCIALITE.

There!
I said it!
Loud and proud!
I hate going places that involve small talk and strangers.
... And table manners.
"Whadda ya mean I shouldn't lick my fingers? How will that saucy goodness get into my mouth otherwise??"

This here is my favorite arena.

I can go around talking to you peeps via the interworldwideweb without having to wash my face, dress up, smell good, etc.
I enjoy this type of bonding. I can always brag about how tall I am meanwhile knowing I can walk limbo under a table.

My attempt to weasel out of going to this holiest of unions started when I asked Andy if I could hire a Bee stand in. His hopeful expression changed once he saw the women I had in mind.





He said no to all of them. I don't know, I find #1 and #3 to closely resemble me.

What? You thought I’d hire a hottie to go with my Andy?? Nuh-uh!

I guess I'll have to stop my pouting and go. Do I sound like a crybaby?

Sorry, it's just that, I can hold my own when out and about but I don't know how to act amongst strangers.
Some people don’t “get” when I'm joking.

Even you guys sometimes don't get me. You know how I know? Cuz you ask me questions like "Why a duck?" Why not a duck? They make me laugh!
At any rate, whether here, there or anywhere, my main objective is to amuse the one person in the world that matters more than cheese... ME!


The problem could be that it sounds good in my head but not so good when I say it? Something to ponder.

I have a stranger danger example from my recent trip to IKEA.

I was looking at cacti and found one I wanted to bring home, then I saw one from the same family only it was bigger and fuller. As I was putting the original one back, a lady asked me, “Are you apologizing to the cactus because you’re not buying it??”
Yup! I sure was. Without even realizing it. I can’t help it.

Was I embarrassed? No. But the lady probably thought I was off my rocker.
.
Anyway, I get self conscious so I just sit there quietly. Looking sad or mad but the reality is, I'm singing Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" in my head.




Alltop has tons of blogs just waiting for you to discover 'em!

  1. now here's the deal. I am an anti-socialite too. small talk is like Chinese water torture to me.

    no I don't give a crap if you're going skiing over Spring break and you don't address someone at their own home as "Now who are you" and then don't even say who you are. This actually happened at baseball practice to me, in my own backyard.
    Then the biotch starts saying what a great guy my next door neighbor is-he 's an ass wipe by the way.

    then tomorrow I have to go hob knob it up with pta moms. some are okay but they never get my jokes and I end up looking like an asswipe.

  18. I'm an anti-socialite too. The best strategy is to drink enough that you don't care any more, but not too much that you embarrass yourself. Unfortunately, in order to be sociable I need to drink enough to be embarrassing. Still, I've been asked to more than one event, so it must be entertaining...

  19. I too have the antisocialite bug. That was one reason I knew that Chris was the one. We enjoy one another, we're both extremely sarcastic, we like to go to restaraunts and make fun of the other people, and we both like to be left the hell alone. It's bliss.

  33. There is free food & booze, you dont have to go to be social. Think of it like, "Man I have to stop em from throwing away all this food & booze. What a waste that would be!"

    & everyone else there is thinkin that same thing they just have a different story than yours for being there.

    ReplyDelete
  34. wait, Andy you forgot the part about having to wear a dress and woman shoes and possibly panty hose. Oh the Horror!!

    all that just for free food?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think it's cute you were apologizing to the cactus :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wait. Are we clicking for something different now? How can nobody told me of this new schedule?

    I know what 'Dancing With Myself' really means. I'm glad that's not the Billy Idol song running through your mind.

  37. Eyes Without A Face is creepier, though. One time when I was 10 and we had just moved here to Texas, we went to the big Art Festival downtown. We are people from freakin Indiana in the middle of the cornfield. We did not know it would be a gay freak show magnet. Anyway, I'll never forget the lovely transvestite singing that song with a huge boa wrapped around her/his? neck. No, not a feather boa. A boa constrictor. And roller skates. Yeah, he/she performed on a mini-stage with a snake and roller skates. That was really a spectacle for a small town Hoosier in 1984.

  38. I'm a bit anti-social, too. It takes me awhile to warm up to people. Usually I really hit my stride, conversationally the moment the party or event is over.

  39. Youll come to MY wedding right?? Ya better!

    Bee is gonna be pissed! She hates the "F" word!!
    She once said "you can say fuck fucktard freckledfuck fuckmeiser BUT DONT SAY F*G!"
