Can I Be on Your Dodgeball Team?

So do you ever get the cold shoulder from someone, and where you normally ignore the crowds that run away when you show up, it just hit you this time that, hey, nobody likes you? Because I just got some of that.

I'll admit, there are a lot of people out there that don't like me. I suppose I make myself quite hatable what with my talking WAY too much and saying what I shouldn't be thinking. Every office has that one guy you just don't want to get into a conversation with. I'm pretty sure that in every setting, I'm that guy.

I can't be the only one who's experienced the adult social equivalent of being picked last for dodgeball—the one where you're at a dinner party or church or a meeting and nobody sits by you. And you notice they're all crowded around the other end of the table as if you smelled (do I smell?). And you think, "Did I not get the memo that we were all sitting on the left side of the table today?"

So if anyone feels like having a nice conversation with me about their weekend plans or sitting by me at some point, I'd like that. And if you don't feel like it, no worries; I'm having one of those days where I'd pick me last for dodgeball too.

I think I'm that person, too. If you want, we could meet up and be rejects together. :)

I thought it was just because I moved around too much, but that was always me. I also thought I would grow out of it, turns out- nope I didn't.

Amy, I'd sit next to you any day! Even if you did smell(which you don't by the way). But I would! When would you like to sit on the couch eating frozen yogurt(that whole diet thing) and watch chick flicks with me? I think we could both use it.

I alternate between being that person and trying to be that person that talks to everyone (notice that THEY didn't talk to ME). You kinda summed up how I feel about my current ward :)
