I never thought it would happen to me, but yes, awkward as it was, it did.
I was sitting there, alone. They had their own group, they talked of their own experiences, while I painfully sought for any chance of entry into the conversation. It didn't come.
I started it on my own, but it died a natural death.
It was painfully awkward, but thanks for the night.
It was nice meeting you all. :)
Now I know that it's good I'm always friendly toward a 'new' person.
