Daily Prompt: NT posted by Ranu

“Parties” are celebration of many things,it can be a get-together at year-end or a birthday,a wedding ceremony and so on.It’s a social function.I love watching everyone dressed up in their finest clothes. Then there are some who are there to show-off their clothes,to me that’s okay too.when I go to these events,I find a spot where I can sit and watch the crowd.

There are a variety of tasty foods,which I enjoy eating.To me it takes about an hour to find my quiet spot.This is when the crowd ┬áis noisy,their conversation to me is meaningless.They look at me as if I am from a very different planet than them.Let me explain why,I stay away from small talk.The behaviour of some becomes intolerable.If I am attending a get-together party in someone’s home. I start getting restless after an hour,I guess it shows up on my face,my host comes to my rescue and asks my most favourite question: ‘Do you want to go home?” I try to be courteous and tell her, ‘No I’m fine.’ Although at heart I really had enough and home is the sweetest word for me. I do not mind parties if the duration is an hour,which is not possible.People just are beginning to warm up and I am ready to leave.

Big social events are not for me. The noise is deafening,I have a hard time dealing with it.I don’t feel energetic in the middle of a crowd.It does send me scrambling for peace and quiet.
