And so we’ve come to hump day. That magical day where hump doesn’t necessarily mean “hump,” if you know what I mean.
I skipped yesterday’s prompt about pets because when I moved out on to my own I didn’t (and still don’t) have the funds to provide for her. I can’t afford the dog food, the extra rent, or the vet bills. I miss her. I miss her waiting at the door when I get home. When I hear a jingle it reminds me of her dog tags slapping against one another and I expect to see her coming into the room. But she never comes.
I’m sad about it, but I have to take care of me and the children first. I know she is well cared for and loved where she is so I can at least take comfort in that.
Okay, enough of the sappy stuff. PROMPT ME!
This all depends on the crowd. If it’s a crowd of people I know then I feel comfortable enough to be myself and be goofy and make people laugh. Once I get people laughing that does fill me with energy and motivates me to keep on going. In a weird way, in crowds of people I know and like I prefer to be the life of the party. I like that I’m able to entertain people and keep them laughing. In fact, it feels good to make people laugh.
If, however, I’m in a crowd filled with strangers I find a place to the side and sit there and quietly observe. I’m not very outgoing and unless somebody initiates a conversation with me I probably won’t say anything. Even then I would say as little as possible. Then I would eventually try to find my way out of said crowd and try to find some solitude. There’s nothing worse than being surrounded by people yet somehow feeling all alone.
AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION TIME! How do you behave in large crowds, Stuph Maphia™? Are you the life of the party or do you find a place to hide?
