* Day 2 – First Impressions

Day 2 Question.

Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot.

This was maybe 10 years ago when I was working at Gamestop. I’ll always remember this because the guy that said it, I kinda had a crush on. I had been working with him for probably a month, and I guess within that time, he and I didn’t talk much outside of work related things. Plus, we didn’t work together all the time, so it took me a long time to warm up to him (as with most people I meet). So one day, I think I was probably caffeinated on coffee or soda and I was much more talkative than normal. He and I finally talked about each other and not about work, and it was good back and forth banter. After several minutes he turns to me and says,

“You know, when I first met you, I thought you were a complete bitch.”

Most people might have been angry with this, but I remember being shocked and almost laughed. I asked him why he thought that, and he said it was because I was always really quiet and never small talked. He admitted that he was wrong to make assumptions and that it couldn’t be further from the truth. Once he got to know me better, he saw a different side of me.

Granted, most people who don’t know me probably still think this about me because it’s just who I am. And I’m okay with that, because I know I’m not a bitch. ##

An outgoing, introverted writer who likes to lie about being outgoing. Talking to your cat at all hours of the night does not count as outgoing; but it doesn't stop her. She is also just as comfortable being at the beach as she is standing in a pile of cactus. If you want to really impress this unique specimen, offer her a box of your best wine.
