"What’s the perfect balance between yelling too much, or not yelling enough?"
Quiet by Jonathan Reid Gealt
I’m so lonely. I always feel like this.
I don’t have any close friends. I wish I did.
I try to talk to people and hang out and stuff…but I’m so awkward. Whenever I go out of my way to say hi to someone I’m really actually pleading in my head,
"Okay…I’m no good at this small talk thing. But, I really want to be closer to you and be really good friends with you, because I think you’re exquisite. So…could we please just skip this awkward small talk and get to the part where we’re friends?"
What comes out…
"Hey. That shirt looks really good on you."
I’ve always insisted on not doing one of these.
But, eh. They seem fun.
Drop a line!
