Why do I always get headaches when I have to be in social situations?  Is it too much smiling?  Not enough breathing?  Tight shoes?  I don’t know.  I got over being nervous in front of crowds a long time ago.  I’m really not bothered by standing up in front of a group of people any more.  But, put me at a table in dress up clothes with more than one fork and I get all stiff and awkward.  It’s not that I don’t know which fork to use – most of the time.  I’m not a Peppermint Patty who doesn’t know how to act right outside of a baseball game (or, in my case a hockey game).  I’m not a rube.  I think I have social graces enough to get by.  I just really, really, really dislike events.  Where’s the Tylenol?
