Should I? 
Well, maybe…
No, some other time perhaps. 
I can’t do that.
I don’t know how. 
I don’t know anything about it.
I have these other things to do.
The phone is ringing. 
I need to check my Facebook.
Dishes need to be washed. 
I have another appointment.
I’m too shy.
I really don’t like crowds.
What if I have a panic attack?
I don’t like to dance and I don’t drink.
I’m not smart enough for that crowd.

Can we do it together?
Will you hold my hand?

    A real charmer this one... loved the little excuses you made through out, they made me smile inside. Topped off with a ray of sunshine in the end... very nice! I am reminded of an older person (around 60 or 70 thereabouts) who came into my work awhile back telling me about how he's been a bachelor all his life and finally found the love of his life. He was telling me how he rented 3 or 4 red box movies, got a couple pizzas, a bottle of champagne... it really made my day!

    Good for him, and whoever he bought pizza and champagne for. J
