Sat, Aug. 18 – How do you think others see you when they meet you for the first time?



Probably not very well.


I am not outgoing. I could seldom be called “friendly,” even with my close friends and family. I am quiet, pensive, and withdrawn. Unfortunately, I suspect that often comes across as arrogant, disinterested, and aloof. If there is something that is the polar opposite of a “people person,” that’s what I am.

If you ever have the misfortune of meeting me a first time, please forgive me. Give me a second chance. And a third. And a fourth. And maybe a fifth. If, by our fifth encounter, I’ve given you no reason to smile or think I might actually be a decent human being, well… then… I completely understand.

I am a nice person. I think. Usually. If you give me time. šŸ™‚

It’s Saturday… don’t forget to let me know if you’ve written all week! It’ll put you in the drawing at the end of the month for that Amazon Gift Card!

From the shores of Wicket Lake,
