I’ve been really tired lately. Today was no exception. I went to pick up takeout for lunch and the girl asked what name it was under. I totally started rattling off my order, and she goes “Right… so, the name?”

Then I paid and she handed me my food and said “Enjoy!” and I said “You too. I mean, you’re welcome. I mean, thanks.” Then I ran for the exit haha.

Oh well.

This afternoon while working, I had about 15 IM windows open (I telecommute so I’m on IM constantly with co-workers) and after I hit the Send button, I realized the “I’m going to walk the doggie, my love, brb, I love you so much!” message I’d intended for Darling Husband had actually gone into the chat I was having with one of my account managers. Whoops!

At least he has a sense of humor!

A couple days ago one of the car porters brought me a bag of popcorn. He stayed after his shift to pop it for me and everything. It was clearly just and excuse to talk/flirt with me (even though I don’t flirt back and I’ve made it clear that I’m engaged). But once he gave it to me he didn’t really have any planned talking points. So there were lots of weird pauses. It was awkward in a “I’m a teenager and have no idea how to communicate that I like you and I know you’re taken but I still need an excuse to talk to you so um heres some popcorn?”-way. Totally awkward, kinda flattering and a little pathetic. When he was almost out of earshot my coworker shouted “What a flirt!” and I’m pretty sure he heard lol.

Me = too many awkward encounters to keep track of. Mostly when I finally figure out how I want to jump in a conversation, but the subject has changed, so I get strange looks at and my comment gets brushed away. 

I am also socially anxious, so that doesn’t help my confidence any.
