Just a quick update regarding the Rollerskating Party. Country Man and I had a great time, until one of the dudes suggested we play the Hokey Pokey on skates. It was probably the lamest thing I’ve ever done in my life so far.
Anyway, a couple of the girls weren’t skating due to a fractured wrist (the friend didn’t skate to show support), so I handed them my camera to take some photos. As you can see, they took a photo of themselves and I happened to be in the background.
But I was skating, and not being a complete introvert as it appears. You would be surprised at how quiet people assume I am. Well, maybe you wouldn’t. I’m not sure.
I am often asked why I am so “shy” and “quiet”, which at one time confused me because I didn’t see myself that way, which led to more confusion as to why total strangers felt compelled to offer their professional evaluation of my character. Mostly it was old men who were looking for an excuse to poke me in the ribs, which nearly sparked the hidden ninja dwelling within.
Since it’s not my desire to seem unapproachable, involving myself with the youth on a weekly basis encourages me to grow in areas I might be coming up short in.
On another note, it’s a beautiful day today and I cannot wait to get outside.
Before I head off into the sunrise, please share your thoughts with me … How do people tend to describe you? Does it bring out the ninja in you at times? If not, does this mean I’ve missed my calling?
