Some things about me...
I don't drink.
I have social anxiety.
I'm über self-conscious.
All of these factors lead people to think the same thing about me;
i am rude,
and i am a boring bore.
I am neither.
I come across as rude because of my chronic shyness.
I am that person who will say something ridiculous in answer to your simple question.
I search my brain for intelligent and humorous conversation.
My brain farts in return.
I come across as boring because i don't drink.
Please, enlighten me.
How on earth does not drinking make me so boring?
I don't like to piss, yes literally piss, the small amount of money i have away.
[i prefer spending this on permanent scars on my body!]
I don't like to feel sick.
I don't like feeling dizzy.
i don't like the affect it has on people.
You must have been 'the sober one' at some point?
You get where i'm coming from right?
I would rather go to a gig, enjoy it, and leave.
Return to my nice warm house,
change into some comfy pants,
and watch Ace Ventura.
Or listen to music.
Or edit some photos.
I enjoy my life.
I don't call you out on your choices.
Don't call me out on mine.
Usually i sneak out of a social gathering,
as not to make a fuss or draw attention to myself.
Tonight i was out and someone asked me what my plans were for the rest of the evening.
I told them straight,
"i'm heading off in a minute, not staying long"
*cue the boos*
At this point i held my hands up and laughingly said,
"oooh i know, so boring!"
And although it seems ridiculous,
it felt so good.
