I enjoy being alone.
I like quiet. I can retreat into my own head for hours. I'm excellent company for myself--I always agree with what I have to say, and when talking to myself, I'm a brilliant conversationalist.
This week, though, I have a case of the lonelies.
Last week I was surrounded by people 24/7. There was always someone to talk to. And not just anyone--I was surrounded by people I genuinely like and find endlessly interesting to talk to.
And now I'm alone again*, and finding that the company of myself just doesn't measure up to the company of others like it had before. I'm not sure what to do with this--this wanting people around. It's new to me.
I'm not sure that I like it.
Anyone want to come visit?
*If anyone says, "But you're not alone! You have the kids!" I'll hunt you down and punch you in the throat.
