This past weekend, our region got quite a bit of snow. Now I know it’s not a huge amount for you folks out in the north or Midwest. Yes I get that you’re used to TONS of feet of snow and we folks down in the South don’t know how to drive. Fine, you’re better than us and we suck at life. (We really don’t, but that’s what you want to hear isn’t it?)
But it snowed all day causing several good inches to fall and making the roads really bad so everyone pretty much stayed in on Saturday. Being as how I didn’t need to be anywhere, I stayed at home the whole day. These are the thoughts of someone who is extroverted being cooped up in their home all day.
9:00 am – Oh hey it’s starting to snow.
10:00 am – All I can think about are the lyrics to Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
(Christmas) Oh, the snow’s coming down
(Christmas) Now I’m watching it fall
12:30pm – Dang it. I should have ordered that pizza. I’m really hungry now.
1:30 pm – I am angry at myself because I didn’t stock up at the grocery store beforehand. Food supplies are limited.
2:00 pm – Well, I’ve already read 2 books today. What am I supposed to do now?
3:00 pm – There is no one on Facebook or Gchat to talk to. Also…if I died today would anyone know?
4:00 pm – I am really bored right now. There is nothing to do.
6:00 pm – Well that was a long nap I just took. BECAUSE I WAS BORED.
9:00 pm – The Musketeers are on and that means I can live tweet with strangers. HUMAN INTERACTION THROUGH THE INTERWEBS SAVES THE DAY?
11:00 pm – There is nothing left to do. I’m just going to bed. Because I’m bored.
7:00 am – Whaaaat? Church is cancelled? Now what?
12:30 pm – The walls are starting to close in. We are reaching full cabin fever mode. AHHHHH
4:00 pm – I AM SAVED. I GET TO SEE PEOPLE TONIGHT. ALL IS WELL.
I know. Not entirely exciting but it did make me realize that while I can go a full day without seeing or talking to anyone, I really do need to be around people at some point to recharge myself. I wish I could be an introvert because I was basically living the introvert’s dream this weekend. But there’s only so many books you can read, so many TV show and Netflix you can watch, and so many of not talking/seeing a single other person that I can take.
