BOY DO I HAVE EGG ON MY FACE!
Yesterday was a party for a co-worker that I'm not that fond of socializing with. But a mutual friend convinced me to go anyway and I did. What I found was a person I thought I didn't want to be around on a personal level, was actually a very pleasant and entertaining person. Boy did I feel like an ASS when I left their home.
I had always been told, and I even told other people, "DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER!" And I thought I had given this person "book" a read, and was not impressed. But obviously, I didn't read past the first few pages. Because what I found out yesterday was that several chapters into the book I was finding myself engrossed in the story.
Sorry for the lame metaphors. But I needed to publicly, at least slightly publicly, admonish myself for my extremely poor social behavior. I jumped to a conclusion about this person, based on only a couple of attempts to get to know them. Shame on me!
Now I have some serious apologizing to do. And you better believe I'm going to do it A.S.A.P.. Because they deserve it.
I am sooo going to try to be better at practicing what I preach.
