This time in a grocery store. A beautiful woman came along and I became over-aware of her and could not find a way to say hello. I’m late 40’s and I bet this has happened 4,000 times in the past 20 years! It’s painful for an extrovert to be this way.
I need a small town. People talk to everybody. Everybody is everybody’s business. I like that.
Is it being sensitive leaving others undisturbed so they can carry on shopping?
Is it pathetic to suppress the desire to interact?
Is it disingenuous to pretend to have something to say over the produce section? “Hey. Nice apples today don’t you think?”.
Is it weakness pure and simple?
