#SoCS – Awkward


Don’t you hate awkward exchanges between yourself and a stranger? They talk to you and the conversation finishes but you’re not sure how to walk away? I’ve had a couple of those this weekend. It’s been an exhausting one, mentally and emotionally. I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve learned, I’ve read my work out loud (something I wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to do), and I’ve met some people who’ve inspired me. In all, I’d say it has been a good time. But now I’m about ready to shut down.

I had an awful conversation by text with my ex. If you know my pseudonym, you can find my rant on that blog. The rant helped, but the conversation helped to drain me. I think now I’ll go look for something to just zone out with. I’ll write more about my weekend later, if I have a chance.

Thanks again to Joey for hosting this week. Please, everyone, stand and applaud. She won’t think it’s awkward AT ALL. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I don’t do tequila, due to an awkward experience in my early 20s…Joey can have mine! And my applause, too – I loved the prompt. =)

    Linda, I’m sorry about the nasty text conversation; those just aren’t fun. I hope it doesn’t overshadow your life for long. Relax – the weekend is past, and I’m sure you rocked it!


  2. Clapp,clapp, clapp for Joey and another glass of the husbands home made wine for both of you ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I saw the prompt late unfortunately. Otherwise I truly felt Joey was calling out to me to write on this – It is me head to toe ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Chiming in late. the only thing worse than awkward conversations is bad-mood-induced-awkward conversations cause by others. Joey’s got this, sit back, tip back and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. I enjoyed this prompt from Joey ๐Ÿ™‚
