Suspect #1: I'm going to call her Headache Girl. I swear, every time I approach her at a party, it's: "Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, but I'm so tired, I have a headache, I just want to leave..." and she walks away. I have stopped approaching her at parties, it's just not worth it.
Suspect #2: I'm going to call her Miss Moody, 'cause homegirl always has a grumpy expression on her face. The other week I was at a party and spotted MM across the room. I thought about walking over to say hi, but then decided to wait until we crossed paths later in the night. Well, we did. She walked right by me—someone was standing in between us—and I waved and said hi. She looked up quickly and gave me a pathetic smile and kept going. Oh. no. she di'n't! Like seriously? Look, MM, I do not want to talk to you any more than you want to talk to me. But, call me crazy, when I see someone I know, I say hi. It's just a reflex, and it's the nice thing to do.
Suspect #3: Miz Fab. Everything is fab-u-lous in her world. If you are not fabulous, you are not her friend. Period. I do not under any circumstances approach her at parties. If I have no one to talk to, I'll just stand in a corner by myself with my vodka tonic, bopping to the music and pretending I'm having the time of my life.
Ugh, I'm getting annoyed just writing about this! How do you handle these types of situations when you're out??
