Sometimes I feel like an alien on this planet who has no idea how to interact with other humans. I try to but it never works out. I saw a friend I used to know years back in the parking garage last night. We made eye contact but I just looked away really fast and kept walking. We pulled out of the garage at the same time and she followed my turns until we got to the north end of the city we work in. I kept avoiding looking at her in the mirror but we caught each other’s eyes a few times anyway. I pulled into a shopping complex to go to the Dollar store for lunch bags and, to my horror, she had pulled in too and parked a row behind me. When I walked up to the store, she was opening the door….I followed her in but went to a different isle. We bumped into each other twice in the store and both times I avoided looking at her. I finally exhaled when I saw her leave the store….
What the fuck is wrong with me? This is a very nice, friendly woman whom I really enjoyed getting to know years ago. I moved from the hospital I’m in now to another campus and we totally lost touch. Worse, I’ve seen AND TALKED TO HER since coming back here. Why I refused to engage her at all is something even I don’t understand.
I don’t do “people” well at all. *sigh*
