Bill the Cat put it succinctly when he said: ACK! Today I feel his pain. And I sort of can't believe I'm quoting Bill the Cat as a great philosopher but just be quiet, ok? I relate to him. He's a beautiful man...cat...man cat. Right.
Now that you are ready to silently click away, let me explain. Why Ack? Because my sensitive nerves cannot handle all the "excitement" and "activity" that I have faced the last week. Honestly, I am like one of those kids at the holiday who pukes on her pretty taffeta dress after her ninth relative has hugged her. It's just too much action for this woman. Not to say that I haven't enjoyed myself, my friends, the food, the wine but for the love of dog, I think I need a little quiet time. A little me time or just us time.
Generally, I love meeting and talking to new people and catching up with old friends but after a while, I just don't want to talk. Or smile. Or make eye contact. Sure, it's fun for a while but then it becomes a little bothersome.
Did I tell that story when I saw her two days ago? Probably.
Is there cheese smeared across my face? Oh yes there is, little darlin'!
Why don't I notice when my zipper is down???? Because, I'm just not that observant.
So what's girl supposed to do? Well, she is getting in bed at eight o'clock tonight and watching TV. She's sleeping in and then grabbing a hammer and nail to put up more trim! And she is going to read, and write, and play Soduko until HER FINGERS BLEED THAT'S WHAT!
Honestly, I don't mean to sound whiny and pathetic, but I really need some time off from human contact until the New Year's Eve party (what should I wear!?!) so that I can be REFRESHED! AND SMILEY! AND WITTY!
No if you would kindly excuse me, I am going to climb into my den and hibernate for a little while.
