Comments: Playing the Wallflower

Every family needs at least one wallflower, Johnny, and I bet they're happy you are theirs! Tell everyone one Susie says "Hi!".

Boy are we alike. I too am uncomfortable in large groups, small groups are more to my liking.

Kind of shy and it takes me awhile to warm up to people I've never met.

I'm sooooo jealous, sounds like you guys are having a great time.

I'll let you in on a little secret....several were dealing with the "people overload"...all in their own way. We're just so happy you're here, wouldn't have it any other way!!!

Awwww, isn't Tammi the greatest! Anyway, Even though I live in NYC I am as shy as they come. Yes I'm able to put on the social butterfly persona in a large group, but I prefer small groups of 1 or 2 people to talk to and really get to know.

As for the social liquid lubricant...been there done that. You're not the only person to ever pass out on a chair. I know I can't handle it so I just sip iced tea instead.

The nice thing about our family is that we're all misfits in our own special way, and we love each other just the same.

Hope you enjoy!!! for all us wall flowers.

I'm really glad you could be there. It was terrific meeting you! And if you felt the need to be a bit quiet for a while - that wasn't a problem. Hope you had a good trip home!

Confession time - I'm a wallflower, too. Mostly it's because when I go to "normal" parties, the attendees are mostly... let's just call them "dim", shall we?... and it's very draining to listen to them talk.

This time around it was wall-to-wall wit. What I liked best about the Reunion was the way the groups ebbed & flowed. It was like we always separated into groups of 3 or 4 and slowly mixed & matched personnel between the rooms. It's like you'd start in the kitchen, step onto the deck for a smoke, pause in the living room on the way back in, get up to whiz and wind up back in the kitchen again.

There were no cliques that I noticed.

Very cool.
