Ya Got Me!
Mdme. Stinkypaw tagged me to tell you four things about me you should know before inviting me to your house. And as I am nothing if not obedient, I shall oblige.
1. I am very polite. Too polite sometimes. So if I ask you if it's ok if I use your bathroom, or for a glass of water it's because I live in fear of just assuming that all of the toilets are in perfect working order, or that my host/ess considers their kitchen sacrosanct. I suppose I should have been born British. That being said, if I say make yourself at home in my house, I mean it. If you want to take off your shoes and take a nap on the couch that's groovy.
2. If you want me to come visit, ask me to come at a specific time. I am very bad about open ended invitations, and my innate shyness will prevent me from inviting myself. I'm kind of neurotic that way. So please, don't take my lack of 'hey, can I come over' as a lack of wanting to. I'm just not programmed to initiate the invitation. I don't know why.
3. That being said, if you are having a party, and the only person I would know is you, please don't invite me. I have always been uncomfortable in such situations, and the older I get, the worse it becomes. Even if I seem excited about the idea at first, as the hour of the gathering draws nigh I almost always start finding reasons why I just can't go. However, if there is even one other person that I know there that I can hang with, then that's cool.
4. Please don't ask me what I want to eat. I am perhaps the least picky eater on the planet(well, except for the freaks on Fear Factor) and if you go to the trouble to cook it, I'll eat it. Fix what you, and your family, like, and I will gladly eat of it. It is ok, however, to ask me what I don't care for, since that list is very short. Guts and beets are pretty much it. :-)
And there you have my house guest neuroses laid bare. Oh, and feel free to drop in any time. :-) (well, call first and give me a few minutes to tidy up a bit) ;-)
And now I pass the toe tags along: Turtle, Sheeps, Dmarks, and Pidgey, y'all are it! :-D
See ya soon,
