In high school, I made up fake curfews so I could go home early from "hangouts."
I'd pretend to be on the phone when I had to run back in after youth group to grab something I forgot - just so I wouldn't get pulled back into conversations. (That trick still serves me well when needed.)
I got annoyed at my friends for sitting on my lawn, refusing to leave until I hung out with them. Mumsy threatened to ground me for being rude - grounding seemed fine with me- after all I just wanted to finish my book!! And we had hung out SO MUCH!
My roommate was afraid to tell people about a show we bought tickets to last week, because she assumed I'd be bummed if the group got too big.
If I have a big party at my house - I immediately want to leave it.
But I love people. :/
