Not a birthday party, not with family, with friends and I helped instigate it. By now you will have seen my social anxiety post. Catch it here. I wrote that the day I had this dinner with friends.
My sister was my driver and she was late. I don’t know if I have ever expressed how much I hate being late but I absolutely do. I know it wasn’t my sister’s fault but I hate the idea of being late almost as much as I hate interacting with the outside world. We arrived at a decent time though and my friend and her husband-to-be had just finished getting him a super quick hair cut. We walked in and a couple minutes later the others who we had invited arrived. My sister and I ordered our food while everyone else was deciding. Once everyone had finished what they were ordering we all kind of got into that calming easy-to-talk to each other thing.
I think that if my sister had really left me to hang out I think I would have been fine but it was nice to have her around.
Instigating something like this is really out of character for me because I have never done something like this before and it is also something that I can’t really do unless someone drives me somewhere.
I think that it would be nice to do something like this again but I don’t know when I will.
