Five Easy Pieces

Courtesy of Nancy, here are Five Things I Am Not:

1. Outgoing. I've tried very hard to work at this over the years, but there are still moments when I hate to pick up the phone to make a phone call to someone I don't know and on rare occasions, someone I do know. Even after all these years, I prefer to order my pizza on-line as opposed to picking up the telephone to call.

2. Average. I'm speaking in the physical here. I'm 5'8" and wear heels most days, so I teeter somewhere close to 6'. I also wear a size 11 shoe, so some days I feel Amazonian, especially when I am next to my 5'3" sister.

3. Spontaneous. I like to know where I am going and what I am doing. The occasional surprise is okay - especially when it comes from the right person. I generally am not all that spontaneous on my own though. I like routine and order and most of my days follow a similar pattern...even on the weekends.

4. Alone. Not to be confused with lonely. I do live by myself in a city where I know some people and have some family somewhat close by, so some days I do feel lonely. But I am not, nor will I ever be alone. My family is only a phone call away - and there are so many to choose from when I need to talk. The aunts especially are an entity unto themselves and I love them for it.

5. Socially Graceful. I was a dancer for years, so I can carry myself. I'm not one to trip over my feet or walk into walls, but I can never seem to juggle all the things I am supposed to when I am out. If I am at a party - wine glass, napkin, plate, etc. When I am leaving Starbucks - wallet, receipt, drink. I feel shorthanded and awkward and I hate that feeling.
