I've officially exceeded my limit for social interaction as prescribed by my owner's manual. My voice is hoarse and my nerves are frayed. I think I'm one conversation away from rocking back and forth in a corner somewhere.
I would channel some E energy to you, but it might have some serious side effects including facial soreness due to expressions outside of your normal range and frequency, also you may look like you're coming on to everybody.
I gave it a good hour before I responded, so as not to be the one to push you over the edge, or cause cramps.
Ohmygoshhe'sonline! *hyperventilates* . . . Wait, no . . . I guess he's not online after all. . . *dies*

The Italian one, because that's more multicultural, unless the one closer to you is a Chinese + Mexican bakery or something (I would love to try a wonton taco, even though I'm not 100% sure I know what "wonton" means. It would just be so broadminded).

I have 2 friends who cook professionally and talking to them is such an enriching experience!!!
There's an actual science behind cooking? *dies again* Just kidding. Actually, I've been told I'm a pretty good cook. Every time I see my aunt, she practically threatens to chain me to the stove. So I guess I'm not that ignorant about cuisine. 'Tis a good thing, because there are actually people who genuinely consider their stomachs to be the doors to their hearts (I personally consider my ribcage to be the door to my heart).

One way for you to own it is to realize that being very aware of how others feel about you and how they react to you is useful! You don't have to use your knowledge to GAIN more approval; just know where they're at and work with them in that state. Or even better, use that knowledge to understand them as individuals, what they care about, what motivates them, and so on. That's the precursor to actually connecting with them.
Well that is sort of what I've been working towards, but people are resistant animals. The other issue is trying to find out if I'm right in my assertions of other's perceptions of me, I do need hard evidence to be sure and it's a realm that rarely has any.

At the time they cut me free. I was brimming with defiance. Doctors looking down on me. Breaking every law of science.
How'd I ever end up here? A latent strain of color blindness. Then it seemed to dawn on me. Haemoglobin is the key
