My boss's boss - The Big Guy - has invited several of us to his home tomorrow for a cookout. I am not sure who all will be there, although I know my boss will not. I know of one other person besides The Big Guy who will be there. I bravely said my husband and I would go, even though I did not know who would be there. I doubt I would be so brave without my husband. This is probably a good experience for me to get out of my comfort zone and stretch my social adeptness (I am a homebody and do not enjoy large groups). The bean bag tournament is the big event for the day. I am no good, but I will play anyway and I will have fun. I will not obsess about whether people will laugh at my lack of skill. There is a pool, but there is no way I will be wearing my swimsuit around any coworkers. That would just be too far out of my comfort zone. I will wear jeans and a t-shirt. That will be stretch enough for me. I will even wear a ball cap because I love ball caps. It will be strange to dress that comfortably around the high-muckety-mucks, but I know they are all great and wonderful people, so it will be as comfortable as a new situation could be for me. All will be well and I will be a more well-rounded person for the experience. Hopefully I will not be any rounder after the cookout, but I will be sure to enjoy every bite just in case!
