Thanks but no!

Recently a very dear friend send me an e-mail:

We're getting Mom and Dad's house ready for their 60th Wedding Anniversary Party on Sep 6. The house should look pretty good in time for the millions of people to arrive. I didn't send you an invitation because I love you. You're welcome.

It is so fanstasic to have people who know me well enough to know that, while I love them very, very, very much, the idea of going to a party crowded with strangers makes me want to crawl under my bed until the event passes.

Rebecca Lynch has made an app for "introjis," which are emojis for introverts. You can find them here. It's one of the few kickstarters I've supported. She gets me.

"Not going, but thanks for the invitation!"

  1. I'm just a hair more of an extrovert than an introvert (I really do straddle the line most of the times) but I have to tell you, my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary just about killed me. I hid in my studio for at least three days after!

  2. I LOVE this! Brilliant and I applaud (at home, alone with my dogs and husband).
