Well, that was kind of embarrassing. I went to this Morris dancing class last night because my friends invited me. Now, I'm a total klutz due to the damn Asperger's and Morris dancing involves a LOT of moving around in close knit patterns and waving hefty wooden sticks around so I said I'd just watch and listen to the music (which i enjoyed). Only one of my friends showed up though. Some of my other friends who i thought were going to be there weren't, so that was the first of a lot of little moments that added up to some uncomfortable stuff as you will see later. My friend told me that after the session they go to Jupiter, which is this bar I really like, but at the end of the session last night there was an announcement that they're going to this one guy's house instead. I asked my friend if it was OK for me to go over there since those guys don't know me and she said yes. Then she says she can't go because she has to get up early in the morning to go to work. So I go over to this guy's house and there's pizza so I grabbed a slice. Then I got told you're supposed to kick down $3.75 for the pizza which I didn't have. So I gave the guy who bought the pizza what little $ i had (a dollar and a lot of change but probably not $2.75 worth) and apologize and tell him I owe him. I think he was pissed but too polite to say so. I want to mention here they all seemed like really nice people so I felt embarrassed about making a bad impression on them. Then they were all making plans to sing. I love to sing and i thought this will help me be more relaxed. Well, I sat through about ten songs and I didn't recognize ONE and I'm a big music geek so I know lots of songs, some of which are really obscure. I finally got so self-conscious that I left.
