It has recently come to my attention that I’ve been quite the social butterfly of late.
Saturday I had a couple friends come over for a short visit in the afternoon. Then I had three more friends come over to do a radio show with us, and shenanigans were had.
Sunday I met a friend for hours of Pokémon fun, then dropped him off with three more friends, visiting with them for a few minutes before my head and back said it was time to go home.
Wednesday I had a couple of friends over for about an hour and a half.
Yesterday I had another friend from out of town stop by and visit for dinner and radio and knitting and conversation.
Tonight, I’m going to be meeting a friend here at the house and then the three of us – my friend, my wife, and I – are going to go meet a second friend for dinner.
In total, that’s socialization five days out of seven, with ten separate individuals. (I visited with a couple of friends three times throughout the week, while one of them was in town.) That’s more socialization than I’ve had in a long, long while.
It feels good getting back out there and being social again, though it’s still a little bit out of my comfort zone. I think that’s all the more reason that I should do it more often.
