1. An aversion to a very large gathering at which I am the center of attention and must be on my A-game and engage all people in the room and make sure they are having a good time and accept a lot of hugs from a lot of people.
2. An inability to leave people off the invite list. Like, I really struggle planning anything for a group of 5 without it turning into a group of 50. A friend once complimented me in high school and said that I was always good at making sure everyone got invited to things. I think it's a blessing and a curse.
So then I had this hilarious realization about my perfect birthday scenario.
It would be a party where everyone I know could be invited, no one is left out, and everyone feels welcome....but I'm allowed to hang out by the food table or in a corner and just watch other people mingle and have a good time. In other words, I think I'd get perfect, genuine enjoyment out of being a wallflower at my own birthday party. Ha. So basically we've established that I'm a little weird about parties.
...anyone feel me? What's your perfect birthday scenario?
