I did something totally unlike me yesterday.
I met up with A Stranger From The Internet.
Amy, a twitter and blog friend, happened to tweet that she was in Indy all week for a business trip. She is a computer programmer and what she does looks insanely complicated to me, but she does it! Anyway, she happened to be staying on my side of town, right by the high school I graduated from. I decided to meet her at the Steak N Shake to chat for a bit. Last night was National Mom's Night Out, and Indy apparently didn't get the memo, so I thought this was an appropriate way to celebrate. When I left the house Luke said, "You can go, but she's probably gonna be a dude and you're probably gonna get abducted."
She was not a dude at all, but rather lovely, and she bought me a chocolate malt.
Thanks for meeting up Amy. (Sidenote: she was worried about the abducting thing too and brought a co-worker to protect her. We laughed about this after it was clear we were both normal.)
I think I am encouraged to do stuff like this more often.
Cause guess what?
I LIKE PEOPLE. I like talking to people. All of this "staying inside the house in my own little bubble" stuff is not super healthy or really my style.
So if you want to meet me and you are not an abducting-type dude but rather a lovely-chatty-type lady (and dude, I am smart, I can tell the difference) drop me a line.
