I enjoy being a churl

Okay, no I don't . But as the noontime invites drift in to go get free ices or free iced coffees I find myself doing my usual dance of "Thanks, but no thanks."

It seems strange, but despite living alone, I still find that I value my time to myself. Rather late in life I am discovering that I just don't have a "group" mentality. I don't need to go to lunch in a pack of people. I sometimes join the folks in the office, who go to lunch together every day and send out memos inviting each other. I can't seem to bring myself to feel like it's necessary every day. I am a bad pack member. I would probably wind up being that one that went off on its own and ends up freezing to death in a snowbank, like in those nature films about wolves.

But hey, by the way, Happy Spring First!

or you'd be the one to go off and find the way out of the forest while the rest of the pack stayed back to freeze waiting for someone to go find help :)
