If I could have made a U-turn on the freeway, I would have… that’s how much I didn’t want to go to this party.
The sheer fact that I was forced to drive in a straight line at high speeds is why I made it to this party.
Now… nothing was wrong with the party. It was set to be a perfectly fine evening of good food and tons of people that I didn’t know. Food and new friends? Come on Joy… get into it!
But sometimes it’s just hard to get into it… right?
I tried every trick in my book. I painted my nails pretty. That usually ups my game. I shaved my legs even though I was wearing a long skirt… you know, for inner confidence. I wore my favorite watch. I wore my favorite ring. I washed my car. I said some prayers. I even made this Almost Vegan Zucchini Bread.
I just couldn’t snap out of my recluse/hermit/ohmygod itotally justwant tostayat hhoooommmmeeee tendencies.
