lately i've been getting a vibe from a particular person that they don't like me. you know, the whole walking by and they stop their conversation and they stare at you? no? anybody? just me and it's all in my mind? awkward. and i'm mostly good with awkward. i'm old enough that i don't need to be everybody's best friend. drama=no gracias. but, if i had offended someone, i would like to know. so, i told thomas about it and i said that i felt like i was getting the stink eye from "nancy". thomas pointed out to me that perhaps "nancy" thought i was giving her the stink eye and so she was reciprocating. which is a good point, i have been known to make weird faces when i'm talking to people. i've always thought i was trying to make interested and good listener faces, but apparently those facial expressions were translating as disgust. the funniest time was when thomas and i were out to dinner with my sister heather and her boyfriend at the time, edweird(he was called edweird for good reason and heather moved on to much better things). but, that night heather had to pull me aside and ask me why i looked like i wanted to throw up on edweird. i thought i was being lovely and companionable. so who knows? perhaps my facial default setting is disgusted? i've spent the last week or so practicing having a pleasant look on my face at all times, just so i'm not the problem. so now "nancy" probably thinks that i am a smiley-hyperactive-maniac and definitely won't want to be my friend.
