HEY—I RESSEMBLE THIS POST!!!!! 🙂
Let’s start with a short quiz:
When the doorbell chimes, you:
1. Leap from your chair, tap dance to the door, and welcome an unexpected social interaction.
2. Scurry to a place of maximal concealment, hold your breath, and pray the caller goes away.
When the phone rings, you:
1. Grin widely, pump your fists, and chirp “hello” before the answering machine picks up.
2. Startle like an idiot, stare at the device while your pulse normalizes, and let voicemail do the rest.
If you answered #2 to both questions, welcome to my world.
Avoiding doorbells and phone calls are vices I never would have dared admit B.S.C. (Before Susan Cain). But since reading Cain’s book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking, I understand the stunned-rabbit response is not a weird-Carrie thing.
