Then, the wall comes....How do you seal the deal? Jump from mall stalker to friend? I never exactly dated (I'm only married, der).. I was just too shy and awkward and whatever the opposite of assertive is. Being uncharacteristically straightforward was part of how I ever got married in he first place ('nother story). So there it is. I think the answer is to go up to people and ask if they want to be friends until I find someone who isn't creeped out by that. Haha. Looking back, this tactic has worked oddly well for me over the years. I think it almost worked in the mall today. I bet I'll see that girl again. :) Really my goal is to find someone else who moved to the area recently, preferably from a cornfield...Or China.
Now, as promised, so that you don't feel like your time was totally wasted be visiting my blog today... Here are lots of squishy baby photos to help you forget all about the fruitless rambling...
