I realized recently that I am an “ambivert” – someone who exhibits characteristics of both an extrovert and an introvert, which would explain why I sometimes score one and then sometimes the other on highly scientific Facebook tests. I’m rarely intimidated in social situations, and I don’t mind being the center of attention, but I’m usually at the perimeter of gatherings, keeping quietly to myself, because I just don’t enjoy the environment of a crowd. I could probably go a whole month in my house if someone would drop groceries at the door, so, when I’m in that phase, I need convincing.
I really wanted to color this panel, but I resisted, and I’m happy with the choice. I have an all-super-hero birthday party to get ready for this weekend.
Friend: Wow, you look really nice!
Jill: It’s a phase. I get all dressed up to convince myself it’s a good idea to leave the house.
